Bob Lawson, product marketing director, GFI Max Software, discusses cloud trends

During the recently held IT Nation show in Orlando, FL, Business Solutions Networking and Managed Services Editor Jay McCall was on hand to capture some of the key takeaways from the show for the benefit of VARs and MSPs who weren't able to make it. One noteworthy meeting was McCall's interview with GFI Max Software's Lawson, who shares insights into events leading up to the Monitis acquisiton. "This recent announcement has been four to five years in the making," says Lawson. "We're now better equipped to give our partners the technology they need in order to serve their diverse end customers in new ways."

Shortly after my interview with Lawson, we discussed an upcoming webinar related to the topic of trends happening in the managed services space. Here is a description and a link to sign up:
