Incisive Media unveils Channel Partner Insight (CPI) for the US and European channel communities

CPI – provides leaders of resellers, MSPs and other specialist consultancies with exclusive analysis of the fast-changing channel sector in the US and Europe, helping them to make smarter business decisions.

CPI is edited by Josh Budd, former editor of Channelnomics EU. His editorial team includes US editor Jessica Meek, previously editor of Channelnomics US, and Nima Green, another former Channelnomics EU journalist.

Among the exclusive stories on CPI today are:

  • Braving the US shutdown. How are US providers with federal customers dealing with the government shutdown? We speak to MSPs to find out how they’re protecting their business, planning for the future, and discovering new opportunities at a time when political volatility is a larger risk factor than ever.
  • A guide to the highest certified cloud partners in Europe. Our exclusive research unveils which partners have earned top-level status with cloud vendors including AWS, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud. We’ve spoken to partners at the very top of the public cloud ecosystem, as well as those who are just getting started, to find out where they’re winning and how they’ve learned from any missteps they’ve made along the way.
  • Spotlight on the Benelux. As part of a new series, CPI will be publishing exclusive analysis unpicking what resellers, distributors and vendors need to know in order to succeed in Europe. Each instalment will hone in on one European region, starting with the Benelux countries. We’ve spoken to regional execs from some of the world’s most established channel names, who share their first-hand experiences of Benelux customer buying and consumption trends, as well as best practices on building a prosperous business in one of Europe’s most strategically important markets.

The live online coverage is supplemented by a daily bulletin and two weekly editors’ newsletters analysing the events of the previous seven days. One will cover the US MSP sector, while the other assesses the whole transatlantic market.

Channel executives can also follow CPI on Twitter, LinkedIn, and Facebook.

Budd said: “We understand that channel executives on both sides of the Atlantic face a period of unprecedented change and disruption. This brings both opportunities and risks. Our job is to highlight the developments that will have most impact and give a fresh perspective on the implications for our readers to help inform their strategic and operational decisions.’’

CPI’s coverage will expand in the coming months. In May, it publishes The Global Elite, the first-ever guide to the world’s best solution providers, including the leading players in the US market.

The publication builds on the success of The European Elite, which was first launched in 2017 and will continue to be published by CPI.

Among Incisive Media’s other plans for CPI is a prestigious MSP conference and awards event in New York in June, bringing together MSP leaders from across the country, providing exclusive insights to support successful business strategies, and honoring those firms and individuals who are winning at a time of unprecedented disruption and change.

CPI’s events and other commercial activities are being led by former Channelnomics publisher Matt Dalton, with former VP of global sales for Channelnomics, Nina Patel as commercial director.
