CompTIA launches new Australia, NZ channel community Featured


The IT industry association CompTIA has launched a new group dedicated to technology resellers, solution providers, distributors, vendors and channel associates based in Australia and New Zealand.

CompTIA vice president, member communities, Jim Hamilton CompTIA, said the new group will meet for their first official face-to-face community meeting on 18 August in Sydney, with Australian IT industry veteran Moheb Moses appointed as director of the ANZ Channel Community while continuing is his role at Channel Dynamics, the boutique channel sales consulting firm he co-founded.

Hamilton cites  an Australian Trade Commission report showing that nearly 90 business owners and executives from companies engaged in the delivery of information and communications technology products, services and solutions – a nearly $100 billion industry, have joined the CompTIA ANZ Channel Community.

“These early adopters are benefiting from having a dedicated forum for ANZ-specific discussions on issues and opportunities impacting channel companies in the region. They’re also providing great direction and feedback on how CompTIA can best serve the ANZ channel and its members.”

According to Moheb Moses, the creation of the ANZ CompTIA Channel Community comes at an opportune time.

“Australian businesses are expected to increase their IT spending by 4.3 percent on average in 2015, according to CompTIA’s International Technology Adoption and Workforce Trends Study. Many of the technology solutions companies plan to invest in – IT security, data storage and analytics, mobility and cloud computing – are the areas where ANZ channel companies excel in,” Moses says.

Moses said the community’s initial focus will be to help ANZ solution providers transition their current businesses to alternate emerging pathways, such as new service delivery models, new economic business models and new distribution models. “This will be accomplished through the creation of new educational resources, financial benchmarking and organisational credentials”.
