BOSTON – Sept. 22, 2016 – Continuum®, the only channel-exclusive IT management platform company, is hosting the expert panel, “Emerging MSP Opportunities in IoT, DevOps, Security & Public Cloud Workloads,” at Navigate 2016, the company’s third annual user conference. Nearly 650 attendees are coming together at the Seaport World Trade Center in Boston on Wednesday, September 28 – Friday, September 30, 2016. Joe Panettieri, co-founder and Content Czar of ChannelE2E, is moderating. Panelists include Brian Coffey, Channel Account Manager at Webroot®; Bruce Nelson, President at Vertical Solutions, an R.L. Nelson Company; Glenn Grant, CEO & Chief Visionary at G2 Tech Group and Charles Love, Manager of Untangled Solutions Service Delivery at Wheelhouse IT (formerly Untangled Solutions).
“This discussion is going to push the bounds of what MSPs might consider to be viable solutions and services that they can provide to their customer base,” said Brian Coffey, Channel Account Manager at Webroot. “If MSPs are looking for ways to grow their business, this discussion will take their thoughts in directions that they haven’t considered before.”
On Thursday, September 29 from 11:00 a.m. – 11:45 a.m., the panel is exploring emerging recurring revenue opportunities, diving into consumer and industrial Internet of Things (IoT) trends, DevOps opportunities and new ways to monetize public cloud workloads – while safeguarding data in transit and at rest. This session includes open microphones for attendees to pose their most pressing questions.
