Identifying market opportunities with strategic business intelligence
The latest episode includes a guest appearance from Tim Suhling, Vice President, Global Business Intelligence, Ingram Micro, who joins Giles Pattison, IT Channel Marketing and Strategy Director, Schneider Electric Europe. Together, they take an in-depth look at how Ingram Micro’s digital approach to data science is helping its partners to thrive. Further, the episode offers key insights into how channel partners can benefit from strategic business intelligence tools to identify new customer acquisition strategies, execute demand generation campaigns with precision and accelerate profitability.
“During the last year we’ve seen our partners quickly adapt to disruption and take the lead with their customers—helping them stay connected and enabled to work from anywhere,” said Tim Suhling, VP, Global Business Intelligence, Ingram Micro. “Each of these scenarios requires a different approach to demand generation, where business intelligence and data analytics becomes a fundamental difference between success and failure. Podcasts are a great way to share knowledge and learn from the experiences of others. Congrats to Schneider Electric on the launch of the IT Channel Perspectives Podcast.”
