Acht redenen om Linux niet te gebruiken

27 april 2018
By


Linux kan erg goed lijken op Windows, maar is het niet.

Linux is in de servermarkt al een paar jaar een geaccepteerd en veelgebruikt platform. Op de desktop wil het maar niet vlotten. Waarom niet? Acht redenen.

IBM ziet kansen voor een Microsoft-loze desktopomgeving. Het bedrijf heeft zoiets al eerder geprobeerd; in den beginne met het eigen besturingssysteem OS/2, maar later ook met Linux. Het biedt nu een compleet zakelijk applicatiepakket dat draait op Linux. Voornaamste doelgroep zijn organisaties in ontwikkelingsregio’s, zoals Oost-Europa en Azië. Ook een bedrijf als

Much at Stake for MSPs in Merger of Datto and Autotask

7 april 2018
By

Chances are high that other providers of MSP platforms will soon move to aggregate IT services as well.

Now that Autotask and Datto are being merged, there’s a lot of speculation concerning the impact that combining two of the larger suppliers of platforms relied on by many managed service providers (MSPs) will have.

Autotask made a name for itself providing a platform for managing MSP operations. Datto is best known for proving data protection services that many MSPs resell. Datto recently expanded the scope of its efforts to include network and file sharing and synchronization software.

It’s clear there’s a potential to start consolidating any number of IT services by integrating within a common MSP management platform. Pete Rawlinson, chief marketing officer for Datto, says while the combined company will clearly pursue those opportunities, care is being taken to make sure the core MSP management platform remains open, including being able to continue to integrate the technology services provided by Datto with third-party professional services automation (PSA) platforms.

Collectively, the two companies provide services to 13,000 partners serving more than 500,000 small-to-medium (SMBs) in 125 countries. The deal itself is being driven by Vista Equity Partners, a venture capital firm that first acquired Datto and then turned around and merged the company with Autotask. It’s not clear to what degree Vista Equity Partner is committed to the combined entity. There’s certainly an opportunity to create a MSP conglomerate by acquiring additional companies and technologies. But venture capital firms typically want to recoup their investments by either taking a company public or, more often, selling the company they invested in to another entity at a premium.

In the meantime, mergers such as this don’t tend to happen in isolation. Chances are high that other providers of MSP platforms will soon move to aggregate IT services

What Partners Need to Know About HP, Inc.

7 april 2018
By

In the channel, HP, Inc. is a storied vendor that has relationships in the channel that go back decades, So after a few troubling years and being spun off from Hewlett-Packard Enterprise (HPE), there are a lot of partners benefiting from HP. But as significant as that turnaround might be for both HP and its partners, HP is making it clear that business as usual in the channel is no longer acceptable. Instead of focusing on transactional sales, HP is now encouraging partners to establish more contractual relationships with customers that deliver IT as a service. It’s not apparent just yet how many partners can make that transition. Many customers themselves are not prepared to give up control of the management of their IT environment. But in time, HP is betting that as the notion of the digital office takes hold, more organizations will conclude that they are better off letting a vendor manage as many of their devices as possible. That shift may put HP in conflict with some managed service providers (MSPs) that already offer similar services. But HP contends that many of those same MSPs will ultimately find it more profitable to resell a service from HP versus continuing to invest their own capital in a custom MSP environment.

Evolution: Finally an Event Name That Makes Channel Sense

7 april 2018
By

Channel Partners Evolution Conference brought together thousands of IT and telecom channel partners. Here’s perhaps the most important takeaway.

“Evolution” is defined as “a process of gradual, peaceful, progressive change or development.” So it is really no wonder that the team at Channel Partners chose to change their “Cloud Summit” conference to the “Evolution” conference instead.

Why is it no wonder? Because evolution is what’s required in the channel, or should I say the channels.

The Channel Partners Evolution Conference was held from September 25-27, 2017 in Austin, Texas. Attending were members of the telecom channel as well as many from the IT channel. Exhibiting at the show were many carriers and other providers of telecom services. Also exhibiting were more IT vendors than before. One major manufacturer of routers, switches and other network equipment had nothing more than a table and chair. No booth. Little collateral. Signs of a nascent presence that can only grow.

Tale of Two Channels

Evolution is an excellent opportunity to witness the difference between the telecom and IT channels close-up. Viewed from the end-customer back, they look like this:

IT Channel

Customer – Companies large and small, usually connecting with either LoB or IT managers

Reseller/Solution Provider/VAR/Systems Integrator – Primarily in business to deliver technology solutions yielding high business value and solving operational and other challenges. Cloud is seen as a selection of remote computing services that significantly reduce customer price while providing higher service levels. Cloud is also often viewed as a threat because it replaces hardware and software sales with lower revenue services paid out over time.

Distributor – Originally referred to as “Aggregator” because they served the function of reducing initial price of products by aggregating the purchases of all the Reseller/Solution Provider/VAR/Systems Integrators they served. Their primary function is to warehouse large quantities of products from many manufacturers ready
