However, before you think that this event is nothing more than an excuse to sit by a pool and drink fruity cocktails, you should know that there’s serious business going on here. Apart from the top-notch education, numerous breakout sessions, and impressive show floor named CodeZone, BlueStar has brought most of its key staff along to interact with its VAR and ISV partners. I had an opportunity to sit with a handful of departmental leaders to get a first-hand account of the trends BlueStar is seeing, as well as how the value-added distributor is dealing with those trends.
