Business development activities grow the business by leveraging 3rd parties.
Opportunites That Business Development Answers
As part of a business development consulting engagement, Digitera can help design both channel development and channel management programs, with the latter offering a program of incentives to achieve channel targets and desired partner behaviours as well as clear statements regarding expectations of channel partners.
Channel development does not exist in a vacuum, and it is subject to the same internal and external resource availability issues observed with in-house sales efforts. As part of the design of a channel program, Digitera will work with you to operationalize channel recruitment efforts relative to overall sales objectives and resource availability.
Designing and cultivating technology ecosystems
Technology ecosystems are a critical tool in improving the time to market for new solutions, easing the passage of new solutions into legacy environments, as well as ensuring the continued success of existing offerings.
They typically take a long time to establish and will wither if not cared for properly.
Together with you, Digitera will :
- Map out current (if applicable) vs. desired technology partner ecosystem
- Operationalize channel recruitment efforts relative to channel / overall sales objectives
- Define success metrics
- Secure commitments within the partner(s) and the organisation
- Design the various outreach activities to achieve ecosystem build-out
Digitera will map your ecosystem, understand opportunities, and develop the tactics required to maximize your success.
