What are UK’s MSPs and VARs looking for?

MSPs are looking for ways to better streamline and expand their managed service offerings and its delivery. Transitioning VARs are looking for a clearer path towards the MSP business model. They both want to ensure that they do not give away the ownership of their customers to Cloud and related SaaS vendors. Both types of channel partners are looking to improve their best business practices so they may future-proof their companies. Both business types are concerned with the conversion of the IT, Telecom and POS channels, especially as new line of business experts and app developers are also entering the channel. They want to know which solutions to offer their clients and which vendors to build partnerships. Since our conferences originate in North America, the attendees also want to get more insights into what is really happening in the North American channel and when it will be coming to the UK market so they can plan to exploit!
