Panel Details:
How MSPs Can Better Compete with Cloud Providers and Reclaim Market Value
February 16th @ 9:00 am

Less than 10 years ago, MSPs served as critical, trusted IT advisors to companies of all sizes. Not only did they deliver unmatched insight into an organization’s IT environment, they also served as the principal vendors of the technology needed to act on these insights.

More recently, the MSP position in the value-chain has been threatened by cloud providers – notably, Google, Amazon, and Microsoft – who increasingly bypass the channel and sell directly to end users. This increased competition has forced MSPs to substantially or moderately reduce service costs to acquire new customers. As a result, MSPs need to re-evaluate their business models and find ways to differentiate themselves to maintain market share. This session will feature opportunities for MSPs to do just that, including which services MSPs should consider, how to implement them and examples of how they impact business.
