The Trajectory of Technology
In September, Volley wrapped up its three-part series of episodes on the Trajectory of Technology. In part two, CompTIA research analysts Carolyn April and Seth Robinson discussed automation as companies look to both maximize their workforce efforts and create resiliency in their operations.
Part three covered the hot topic of workforce enablement. As companies find their remote workforces to be productive, they can't always get the same level of innovation or networking. Moving forward, businesses will have to make decisions about their strategy and their culture, then they will have to find technology that enables both productivity and the pieces that typically come from face to face interactions.
MSP Marketing Strategies for 2020 and Beyond
Hartland Ross, founder and president, and Devin Rose, vice president of digital marketing, at eBridge Marketing Solutions joined host Miles Jobgen of CompTIA, to breakdown marketing strategies for IT solution providers. During the conversation, they covered how to determine your business’ priorities, deciding what strategies to invest in, and marketing tactics for MSPs.
