Whether he is serving as an expert source for an article or on stage at one of our live events, we know that he will deliver expert opinion in an engaging, entertaining and a thoroughly credible way. Manny makes our job easy!"

Bob Huth, CEO | Holiday Delta, Inc. dba Domions Pizza

“I have known Manuel W. Lloyd for almost twenty years and have used him as a Technology counselor, for all of those years. My company has always found itself ahead of the curve and ahead of my competitors with Manuel’s guidance and recommendations. I have found them to have the highest regard for integrity, ethical dealings, and morality. I highly recommend Manny as an associate or business partner.
His company is very capable and highly knowledgeable. They provide expert advice, risk management and planning, they manage the IT needs of our staff, they secure our systems 24x7x365, & provide mitigation in all other areas of our critical IT needs. My business has over 300 computers in operation at any given time, day or night and weekends and Manuel W. Lloyd Consulting® keeps it running. Manuel "Manny" is a rare individual and I, having had dealings with him, his wife of 20 years, their 8 beautiful children, and his company for some 20 years, without hesitation, highly recommend them."

Chris Weber, Managing Partner | Casaba Security

"If you want someone who understands technology and its end-to-end place in business, Manuel's your guy. He's always had three traits that are rarely found together in any one person - passion, vision, and sincerity. Manuel takes good care of his employees, and naturally makes you feel challenged and empowered. As a client, Manuel's attention always puts you first, he listens, and ensures you’re comfortable and in-the-know about every important decision. Excellent manager of things people and process.”

Spence Hackney, President | Proclaim Interactive

“We hired Manny to review our email architecture…
and make some recommendations for improving performance. He had a deep level of understanding of the subject matter and was also able to see the big picture of how it integrated with our overall business strategy. He was frank with his recommendations and helped guide us down the path to the right decision! We'd certainly use him again!”

Steve Kelley, CEO | Arganteal Corporation

“Manuel W. Lloyd Consulting® helped our firm with Microsoft Lync Enterprise deployment technology earlier this year. Our requirements were a bit out of the ordinary and we have been very happy with their services and have retained them for an ongoing engagement.

Competing With The Cloud

ChannelPro Magazine  print

2014-01-01

As a model of computing, the cloud certainly promises a lot of benefits that are hard to beat. Fast and easy deployment of applications, reduced capital expenses, and payment based on usage are among the top reasons proponents say that cloud services will transform the IT industry. Yet there are still channel partners that aren't buying the cloud's positive message. For many of these partners, the cloud represents yet another competitor that threatens to erode their margins and lure away long-standing clients.

To counter the cloud's considerable pull, channel partners should not bury their heads in the sand or deny that the cloud has any merits outright. Instead, channel partners need to play to their strengths to effectively go head-to-head against cloud services. Cementing personal relationships with clients, emphasizing a client's individual business needs, and yes, even offering up cloud services via a hybrid model, can enable channel partners to profitably coexist alongside cloud service providers.
