Microsoft’s worldwide Hosting Partner of the Year 2010, and Cloud Service Provider Outsourcery, is launching CloudSmart, its latest campaign supporting its InPartnership programme designed to help partners take advantage of the rapidly increasing opportunity presented by cloud. The company says the market for cloud is growing exponentially as illustrated by Forrester Research’s revised global cloud market value figure of $241 billion by 2020, compared with the $40.7 bn predicted last year for the same time frame.

“The campaign, ‘CloudSmart’, is built around the ten commitments that Outsourcery is making to its partners in order enable them to make the move into cloud,” said Simon Howitt, Channel Business Unit Director. “Cloud is seeing significant take up but we understand that partner’s businesses are at different levels of understanding and adoption which could lead to them missing the opportunity should they delay entry into the market. To simplify their decision we have created CloudSmart to support their needs and make their relationship with us as successful and profitable as possible, while opening up their potential to become part of the cloud success story.”

He continued, “InPartnership delivers the opportunity to earn excellent commissions whilst helping partners define their cloud strategy. The cloud has arrived but there are still lots of partners who are ignoring or resisting the opportunity, hoping that it will go away. They need to be aware that if they are not talking to their customers about cloud, their competitors will be. Partners will find working in partnership with Outsourcery hugely rewarding as well as incredibly easy.”
