NOTE From DSA Editor: In our view this is the future of the Systems Integration Channel. Cloud is redefining all of the traditional boundaries. Gone are the days when strict channel only route to market had to be adhered to for vendors using channel based sales strategy. with cloud that changes, vendors sell direct, through partners and even through affiliates. Singapore based CloudFX have been at the forefront of building cloud expertise to help their customers maxismise efficiencies and utlise the offerigs that are right for them. Not all cloud is equal, services, price models and implementation requirements are often difficult to understand. It looks like Cloud Select is simplifying the huge mix of offerings available and we applaud CloudFX for that. The days of the simple "reseller" may well be numbered, but cloud integrators with real expertise, well their time is here and now.
