    Lead analyst for Gartner, Tiffani Bova, took the stage on the first day of Ingram Micro’s Cloud Summit, following the event’s intro session with Renee Bergeron, VP of managed services and cloud. Bova covered her usual amount of territory — a lot — and left the audience with some words of wisdom: “We are at an inflection point. The sky isn’t falling; cloud just another delivery model. But it is an inflection point nonetheless.”

  10. Three, Two, One: Countdown To Autotask Community Live

    By Gennifer Biggs, security, storage, and managed services editor
    Each spring, I look forward to the Autotask Community Live event. Maybe it’s because, three years ago, it was my first event as a new editor, and I was greeted with gracious hospitality. Maybe it’s because it is early in the travel season. Or, maybe it’s because the event, while more than 700 MSPs strong, still feels cozy and comfortable, like hanging out with old friends.
