But, to succeed, they must move beyond traditional thought processes and become “modern MSPs.” This includes evolving beyond being a “one trick pony” specializing in basic cloud migration, and instead look at the latest services being adopted and demanded by businesses.According to IDC, the cloud opportunity will exceed $500 Billion by 2020. This is a huge opportunity for MSPs, especially for those in the Microsoft Partner Ecosystem. These partners, however, have challenges to overcome. Many MSPs lack the background and know-how to sell new services, do not have the technical expertise or certifications to easily integrate new offerings and cannot afford additional time and resources to manage and support the constant evolution of the cloud market.
ITEXPO is billed as an annual gathering spot where telecom, IT C-level professionals, business owners, developers, and the channel learn and conduct business.
