B2B specialized publication

    The objective of Enterprise Channels MEA is to create awareness about the increasing influence of ICT on various vertical markets. The magazine focuses on how ICT as a solution is impacting the entire market in terms of enhancing productivity of the workers and efficiency of the services. Through various sections, the magazine talks about trends of the market from the implementation, usage and buying perspective. We emphasize on how the enterprises can be benefited by implementing new age technologies like virtualization, cloud computing, SaaS, enterprise security, enterprise surveillance, enterprise communications, mobility, BYOD, etc.

    The magazine also creates a bridge between the ICT vendors and enterprises or institutional buyers through the channel partners or appropriate resellers. It enhances awareness about the importance of selling solutions and services and discourages the partners from dealing solely with products. We emphasize on how the channel partners can improve their scope of earning by embracing business around the solutions. Therefore various sections of the magazine are dedicated to the topics related to market opportunity, scope of investment, technology trends, vertical market performance, growth direction, buying behaviour, etc. The magazine caters to channel partners including resellers, SIs, Service Providers, ISVs, ISPs, network integrators and VADs in the industry and CXOs of all vertical market segments including Hospitality, Healthcare, Retail, Education, Media, Govt. and BFSI, etc.

    The ICT traders, who are the interface between the vendors and customers are on the cross roads. They need a trusted partner to influence their decisions. Enterprise Channels MEA is the only magazine, which can be trusted and looked upon by the partners as the true influencer. We are the only magazine to talk about the futuristic business dynamics. The magazine focuses on enhancing skillsets of the channel partners to offer solutions and services to the customers rather than dumping products with them. The magazine brings vertical-specific market opportunities and trends from ICT perspective and prepares the partners and the vendors to address the market. Each edition of Enterprise Channels talks about two major topics of the industry (please go through the edit calendar).

    In addition, we will be bringing special stories in each issue this year which can go a long way in helping businesses across the region deliver their best.

    The ever changing and challenging role of CIOs has been defining the way business is done in modern enterprises.

But the current market, that is ripe with innovative technologies and advancements, has been providing a symbiotic platform for the tech providers and their partners to combine the best of their capabilities and take it to the enterprises. The current scenario of technology is smart enough that technological systems and processes can be designed and customised according to the requirements of the enterprise CIOs. The Titans would take a close look into the end user perception of the current IT landscape and explore the various on-going and implemented IT projects across verticals. With some interesting topics to go with each volume, the Titans would cover CIOs from various verticals, including Healthcare, Banking, Real Estate, Education, Retail, and other Government and Business Organizations.

    Going by the pace with which technology is evolving, ‘The FUTURE is already here’
    If ‘Globalization’ –as a situation— is erasing geographical boundaries and barriers, then ‘Technologization’ is truly transcending or rather substituting humanity and its daily chores and course. With the great strides and innovations that technology is coming up with each passing day, the horizon of advancement is still an imaginary axis.

    That’s how we define our FUTURE IT SUMMIT.

    ‘Future’ and ‘IT’ are synonyms. Nobody knows what they have in store for the human race. Accent Infomedia successfully brought these synonyms on a unified platform. Enterprise Channels MEA hosted its first ‘Future IT Summit’ at the Address Hotel—Downtown Dubai on March 16, 2015. The event that won accolades from the market for its sheer excellence in addressing and exploring the Hybrid Cloud brought together IT stalwarts and key players from across the region to discuss the latest in cloud technology and work upon partner enablement strategies.
    Themed around the ‘Hybrid Cloud’, the main objective of the summit 2015 was to allow participants of diverse verticals, IT expertise and policy experience to share their perspectives on the challenges and actions needed to advance the implementation of cloud with a view to deepen the process of involvement and commitment by all IT vendors, solution providers, distributors and stakeholders.

    CATALYSTS AWARDS

True to all its sense, be it chemistry or the industry. Behind every successful organization, there is a person who thoroughly pushes his/her limits to achieve excellence that goes beyond horizons. But often as companies get the limelight, these people are seen missing on the spotlight.
    So here we are. Catalyst— the first of its kind award ceremony in the IT media world, carrying forward its legacy of 2015, will once again recognize and honor the trailblazers in the industry who have been uplifting the brand and reputation of their respective organizations in the market and truly acting as ‘CATALYSTS’ in the ever-changing market landscape.
