Three Must-Have Tech Investments Intel Partners Need To Make

Intel U.S. Channel Chief Jason Kimrey named the top investment areas that partners need to make in an interview with CRN. His comments come as the chipmaker gets ready to roll out a newly rebranded partner program.

Intel has been working hard to support the evolving needs of partners.

This October, the chipmaker will begin to roll out new tools under its rebranded partner program, the Intel Partner Alliance. But the pressure’s also on for Intel’s partners, who need to make their own investments to remain competitive in the market. In an interview with CRN, Kimrey urged the channel to get-to-speed in these areas:

Advanced Data Analytics

Kimrey: “If you look at where the growth is right now, certainly it’s AI and analytics. This is really about making sense of the data that’s being created and I think the latest stat is that only two percent of the data is actually analyzed. That just creates a tremendous market opportunity for partners to deliver services around analytics and following through all the way to artificial intelligence, so I think that’s a big opportunity.”

Internet of Things

Kimrey: “We are really seeing tremendous opportunities there and real-world use cases of where IoT is enabling partners to deliver new value to their customers, and analytics at the edge is a key part of that. So, you are really seeing the convergence of AI and IoT really providing a new services opportunity.”

All Things Data-Centric

Kimrey: “This really relates to IT modernization. There are still a lot of legacy systems out there that need to be modernized. Some will go to the public cloud – some will go to private. I think this rise of hybrid is clearly a key opportunity and helping customers manage their workloads and manage their infrastructure is a key opportunity.”
