  1. 1. Prospects in BI Solutions Selling Space (Part2) By P. K. Chatterjee | Mumbai, May 29, 2008 MAIA Intelligence develops Business Intelligence (BI) reporting and analysis products. In an exclusive e-interview with ChannelTimes, Sanjay Mehta, CEO of the company, unfolds potentials and paths for resellers to enter into BI business segment, to P. K. Chatterjee. Excerpts... What will be the role of the resellers for this BI business? Resellers can shake the BI business in India. IT solution providers, hardware vendors, software vendors, consultants, CA firms - who already have a good relation with enterprise class customers, can do it. After evaluating the need, resellers can easily convince the decision makers of the organization for a BI product, the top management or decision maker would have faith in them due to long relationships. Here, you as a reseller have an advantage in earning additional revenues from your existing customers and contacts - in terms of margins on product sell for exclusively promoting the MAIA's 1KEY brand. What's the difference between selling IT hardware and BI solution? Since BI is a solution it's more appropriate to sell them directly rather than distribute as BOXES. Some domain knowledge or expertise is required or rather more essential than just selling it as a product. What is a reseller's benefit from BI business? MAIA Intelligence believes that NICHE is essential to building a channel program that works for the resellers. Resellers can look at the advantages like: i) Least competitive and emerging market, ii) Excellent margins from the high value software deals, iii) Access to corporate customers, iv) Access to global market, v) Additional revenues from the existing customers etc. They will also get a training on World Class BI product Our Reseller Partners are - companies who want to take the opportunity to market, distribute, sublicense, all MAIA Intelligence BI products. They can earn excellent margins based on performance.
