The Partner Community is Crucial to Security Vendors' Success in the Australian Market, Says IDC

  • 20 June, 2006 15:26

<p>NORTH SYDNEY, 20th June 2006 – Close to eighty percent of all security software was sold indirectly through the channel in 2005, according to IDC's latest study, "Australia Security Solutions Channel Partner Review, 2006" (Doc #AU32130302N).</p>
<p>IDC recently asked 200 people at the 2006 IDC Australia Directions event if they believe partnerships will be crucial for the future success of their companies. A unanimous 98 percent of the audience agreed that partnerships will indeed be crucial to their success.</p>
<p>Partners are at the frontline in understanding customers because they are the ones facing the customer, often owning the client relationship. "The high number of small to midsize organisations in the Australian market makes it vital for security vendors to build robust partnering, alliance strategies and ecosystems in order to gain and maintain market share," says Patrik Bihammar, Market Analyst, Security Solutions.</p>
<p>This IDC study offers a window into the Australian security partner community. It provides security vendors with insights into channel partners' needs, requirements, expectations and experiences. It also gives perspective, guidance and prescription to help security vendors better understand the needs of their partners as well as how to engage with them more successfully.</p>

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
