This IDC study presents the current state of the IT partner ecosystem. IDC's IT channels and alliances taxonomy is a comprehensive framework describing the different relationships, business models, coverage plans, and go-to-market (GTM) partnering activities across the IT industry. IDC has identified a multidimensional approach to describe and segment the IT partner ecosystem and offers different approaches to partner segmentation.

"With the dramatic shifts in the IT industry in recent years, the partner ecosystem has also experienced some significant change to meet the new digital customer needs. This taxonomy is our effort to clarify some of the changes, and help vendors and partners have better outcomes." — Steve White, VP, Channels and Alliances
