Additionally, Ted Roller, Owner of GetChanneled and instructor at CompTIA, is presenting the Navigate session, “MSP Trends & Insights” on Monday, September 28, 2015, 2:00 p.m. – 2:45 p.m. PDT. Managed services remains an attractive business model for channel firms and a valuable IT management option for many customers. The challenge, however, has been getting the message out there. A big piece falls under the category, know the end customer. CompTIA’s research study takes a look at how end users view managed services today, what they expect and value in the model and what cause them pause. More deeply, the findings capture end user adoption habits and usage patterns. These insights offer actionable knowledge to any present or future MSP looking to best serve potential and existing clients effectively.
