Challenge

Build a scalable, high-performance demand generation engine to capitalize on target market opportunities for cloud commerce digital transformation:

Build the Brand: CloudBlue, a subsidiary of Ingram Micro, had limited brand recognition with a small but critical target audience of high-value prospects.

Solution

R2i built an integrated program that would resonate with and activate the ecosystem of current customers, potential partners, analysts, and SMB customers — making CloudBlue the strategic choice and long-term bet for successful enterprises.
