A power packed panel discussion on the opportunities for partners in the digital era

iRishtey is a familiar conclave to the channel community. The previous editions were held at Colombo and Bali. This year the symposium was held at the picturesque Le Méridien Beach Resort, Phuket, Thailand and was live streamed across selected locations. iRishtey has customarily been that single platform that empowers channel partners with technological advancements, arrive at collaborative go-to-market strategies and discover innovative growth opportunities along with iValue and its OEMs.

Nityanand Shetty, Founder & CEO, Essen Vision Software, said, “Our journey with iValue started right from its inception. So it always meant much more than mere business formalities. The whole management team is like family and doing business has always been a pleasure and fun experience. We do have our friendly banter at times but the relationship stands so strong that there has never been a show stopper.”

IT investments continue to be driven by digital business transformation initiatives from both private and public organisations, India’s IT spending alone is projected to become a $89 billion opportunity in 2019, as per Gartner. While organisations are discovering ways to infer and steer digital transformation over forthcoming years, the IT channel has incredible opportunity to lead and profit from the digital future. iRishtey is ideally placed to serve stakeholders associated with the industry to exchange insights, string partnership and aid the growth of IT industry.

Altaf Halde, Global Business Head, Network Intelligence, commented, “As a valued partner of iValue, it was a great opportunity to be part of iRishtey 2.0 event in Thailand. Meeting the top cybersecurity partners of the region under one roof and hearing from the OEM market leaders including Cyberark, Microfocus, FireEye and other vendors on their offerings, market dynamics & their upcoming region strategies. Participating in iValue events always helps to gauge the market sentiments and learn about new upcoming technologies. Looking forward to the next iRishtey event.”

Partner Testimonials

iRishtey, an excellent platform created by iValue to draw on the power of collective learning through sharing. This year the platform gave an immense opportunity to GTM partners and technology partners to get together and share from each other’s experience. The disruption of business due to digital transformation and how the businesses are adapting to the change was a great conversation between the technology partners and the GTM partners. We had good conversation with passionate entrepreneurs around the data ops and how data can be the game changer in the digital transformation landscape.

iRishtey 2019 has been a great show. It’s a great platform to connect with value partners and refresh the best value that technology partners can bring on table for customers. This year, iRishtey brought forward the need to align with ongoing digital transformation across industry and encouraged a discussion on consolidating solutions around Secure Devops, Hybrid IT, Security Risk & Governance and predictive analytics. It came out clearly that partners need to move beyond point product transactions and look forward towards customer’s business value alignment. Congratulations to iValue team for putting up a great show.
Jyoti Prakash, Country Director, Micro Focus

While Cybersecurity is getting the required board level attention, strategic questions are being raised around what is the risk exposure score of the company, where are the exposures, are they improving over time and most importantly, how does the organizations compare to its peers when it comes to your cyber security risks? Filled with some interesting discussions, it was a successful event with an attendance of over 100 delegates. iRishtey was packed with partner presentations, panel discussions, industry insights and experiences to help businesses grow and win market share. Good show team iValue.
