Over the past decade, we've seen massive disruption channel philosophies and partner strategies. In Tech, the technologies including Cloud, IoT/IIoT and big data with analytics have transformed how we approach the OT-IT landscape. Businesses look to strategic advisers to help them drive broad digital transformation. At OSIsoft, we have aligned and look to further expand our Channel & Partner strategy to build the best Ecosytem to serve our current and future PI-customer base. In this keynote, Mary McDonald, Vice President Global Channel and Strategic Partners, will discuss how partners can and have become agile technology advisers and solution providers teams with OSIsoft to adapt to meet the wider digital transformation business needs. She will also highlight successes and introduce one of our new key members of our Global Channel and Partner Ecosystem.
