Intel Changes Coming
Partners should expect more big changes down the road as Intel continues its transformation from a PC-centric company to one focusing on data, cloud and the Internet of Things, said Ricardo Moreno, Intel's vice president of channel sales.
2017 was already a year of change for the channel, but Moreno hopes to continue the transformation in the coming year as the Santa Clara, Calif.-based company tries to connect partners, educate them around new areas of expertise, and build a stronger focus on the company's ecosystem.
But one thing will stay the same in 2018, said Moreno – Intel's deep focus on the channel. Following are excerpts from CRN's conversation with Moreno about his vision for Intel's partner program.
