INTEL TO MAKE E-BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT & DEPLOYMENT MORE EFFICIENT THROUGH INITIATIVE.
The Intel e-Business Network will combine Intel's present channel programs, which includes system builders, product dealers, networking consultants, Internet Service Providers, and Web integrators, into one connected network, allowing them to partner with each other on e-Business build-outs. This is critical, because a single vendor can rarely meet today's e-Business requirements, and companies must often team with each other to meet the needs of customers.
An important element of the program is the Intel Business Market Place, a Web-based service that will enable members of the Intel e-Business Network to partner with each other. For example, the e-Business Market Place can match a seller of Intel networking equipment with an ISP or a Web integrator, so a customer can receive both hardware and Internet access. Additionally, e-Business solutions that are tested in Intel labs with Web integrators will be available to program members through the Intel Business Market Place.
E-Business Certification & Training
Intel also introduced a new e-Business certification program, which will be available to members of the Intel e-Business Network, as well as to information technology professionals. This multi-track-training program will cover Internet applications, networking, security and servers.
Global Conference: E-Business Training Spanning 70 Countries
The first Intel Channel Conference will provide a central forum to train participants, launch products and programs, promote key Intel initiatives, and equip channel members with the tools to embrace and deliver e-Business. Thirty thousand companies are expected to attend the first conference, which will take place this year in more than 250 cities in 70 countries from March 27 through June 1. The content will be translated into 15 languages and will also be made available over the Web to attendees. Intel Channel Conference participants will include all of the Intel Channel members referenced above.
