CompTIA is calling on the Australian and New Zealand channel communities to collaborate and share insights and intelligence in order to drive the channel – and IT in general – forward.
The organisation held its first Australia and New Zealand Channel Community meeting in Sydney earlier this week, with more than 90 people in attendance.
The ANZ Channel Community is designed specifically for technology resellers, solution providers, distributors, vendors and channel associates across ANZ, with a goal of promoting industry collaboration and driving IT forward.
Moheb Moses, Channel Dynamics director and CompTIA community director, says the purpose of the group is to work together to improve ‘ourselves, our businesses and our industry’.
“To do this, we want the community to share its insights, your perspectives, to provide direction for the community, and to champion the initiatives of the community here in Australia and New Zealand,” Moses says.
“The more collaboration we have, the better this initiative will work.”
Nancy Hammervick, CompTIA senior vice president, Industry Relations, says CompTIA is an advocate for technology growth.
“It’s really about collaborating together, sharing insights and intelligence,” Hammervick says.
The event included a series of roundtable discussions covering changes in the IT market, challenges and opportunities, and strategies for surviving and thriving in the industry.
Jim Hamilton, CompTIA vice president of member communities, says the event ‘made a great start to the climate of collaboration we want to promote in the local IT industry sector’.
