WHD.global 2016: What Does the Future of Hosting Look Like?

Odin forecasts that the global cloud services market for SMBs alone will be worth $160B (USD) by 2018

Odin is excited to return as a Diamond Partner at this year’s WHD.global event, being held in Rust, Germany, March 15-17.

WHD.global, the world’s largest hosting and cloud services event, brings together leading experts and insiders for high-value presentations, networking, informative panel discussions, and breakout sessions. Last year, WHD.global set a new record with over 6,300 international attendees, and is predicted to set new records in 2016.

Hosters and cloud service providers are facing unique challenges in today’s dynamic market, including commoditization, price wars, and customers demanding cloud innovations beyond traditional hosting services.

Increased competition and digital disruption from new and emerging players have not only created threats, but also new opportunities for traditional hosting providers. Hosters will need to transform and become a full-service trusted advisor, and support new cloud services with technical and operational innovations. In the new cloud economy, cloud service offerings are key for hosting providers to increase revenue, reduce customer churn, and deliver an exceptional customer experience. Hosters will need to become more things to more people, and their legacy systems may not have the capabilities to deliver this level of service and support.

During our WHD.global keynote presentation, you’ll hear Pavel Ershov, Sr. Vice President, Odin AutomationSales, Marketing and Customer Success, speak about a revolution coming to the hosting business model. Pavel will outline Odin’s vision to help partners develop a more comprehensive cloud business model that meets their customers’ evolving needs.

At WHD.global you will see the complete vision of the Odin and Ingram Micro Cloud ecosystem. For example, the Ingram Micro Cloud Marketplace, one of the world’s largest cloud marketplaces, and powered by the Odin Service Automation platform, delivers the full range of cloud and digital opportunities to our partners, enabling them to thrive in the new cloud economy.

We also look forward to discussing the Microsoft CSP program with you. With Odin Service Automation, partners can automate and streamline the CSP program's end-to-end process on a single platform.

Odin and Ingram Micro Cloud have really created the perfect solution for success.
