Greatest Hits from Channel Partners Expo 2017: What We Learned

This past week we attended Channel Partner’s 2017 Conference at the Mandalay Bay Conference center in Las Vegas. This is the second year we have attended the show and we always get some great insights. This year it was apparent that the cloud telecom economy is booming, based on the increased attendance and exhibitors.

The conference and expo covers telecommunication and cloud technology, with this year’s focus being on Software Defined Wide Area Networks (SD-WAN). This tech is set to be the new way to connect multiple office locations and organizations to their cloud infrastructure. Many of the vendors at the show are currently focusing on creating relationships with managed service providers, like Mannassi IT Solutions, to promote and sell their products to consumers. Having a managed service provider streamlines your technology needs, giving you a complete IT department at a lower cost than hiring someone in-house. It’s like having an IT guy on call just when you need them!

Other topics that came up included moving some or all a company’s IT infrastructure over to the Cloud. Cloud adoption has been in the news recently, with companies large and small making the switch to save space, money, and effort. Imagine being able to house everything you need without taking up any space!
