- Technology Partnerships (Alliance Partners and Strategic Partners)
TSANet Industry Advisors

Technology Partner Framework
One of the major initiatives during the next strategy cycle is to develop the TSANet Technology Partner Framework further. The industry consultants lead discussions on the critical elements of this framework and how TSANet can add value to Members through this framework.
