    5 Ways MSPs Can Prepare For The Internet Of Things

    For those not already familiar, according to Gartner the Internet of Things (IoT) is “the network of physical objects that contain embedded technology to communicate and sense or interact with their internal states or the external environment.” If you’re like most of the small business owners or managed services providers out there, you’re likely still trying to wrap your head around the hype and figure out what this actually means for your business.

    From CEOs who aren’t using marketing to grow their business, we often hear the same reasons why: lack of time, lack of money, not sure where to start, stuck in the technical part of the business, wearing too many other hats, the list goes on and on.
