SNIA Europe is working on building a strong Channel Community program, one that will stimulate collaborative, working relationships with companies that resell, consult on, or influence storage technology in order to increase the level of integrated storage solutions in general business and IT environments.
It is the goal of the SNIA Europe to continue building our network of partners. The channel community provides significant benefits to the industry as a whole, fostering the dissemination of information on storage networking technology, increasing IT industry awareness about trends, technologies and standards in storage networking, advancing the adoption of data storage solutions across all business and technology boundaries, establishing a strong international presence to address the needs and requirements of the local storage and information management marketplace.
Walter Moriconi (Oracle), SNIA Europe Board of Director is successfully driving engagement with the Channel Community. Walter’s skills in marketing and sales as well as business management and development, stem from over a decade in the IT industry; these and his four-years of experience as a member of the SNIA Europe's Italian Committee make him a very strong addition to the association’s board of directors.
In his role Walter will help SNIA Europe educate the IT industry on storage networking technologies, increase industry awareness of trends and standards and advance the adoption of data storage solutions. SNIA Europe has a long established reputation as a recognised, EMEA-wide presence in the IT industry, and identifying and addressing the requirements of country-specific storage end users is one of the priorities for new board member Moriconi.
Moriconi's view is that the association should continue to empower channel organisations by allowing them to stay up to date with best practices, gaining access to data storage, management and security experts, is reinforced by his support of SNIA Europe’s channel liaison efforts. His ability to identify and target key opportunities and build strong relationships with IT vendors and partners comes from many years’ experience in working with channel partners, including OEMs, VARs, distributors and resellers.
