The Office 365 Gold Rush Is On – and so is the SMB Nation Fall Conference

Sep 02

Harry Brelsford

 

Karl welcomes back SMB Nation‘s Harry Brelsford, whom helped us launch our very first episode of Odd Tuesdays 16 episodes ago in January!

Karl and Harry discuss the flurry of activity that has been going on over the last year with Windows XP and Server 03 migrations. Harry mentions his recent blog post about the Office 365 phenomenon, with Microsoft reporting incredible sales records.

Harry also mentions SMB Nation’s support of Microsoft Community Connections, educational events that are being used to help connect local business organizations with Microsoft Partners.

The pair also discuss the SMB Nation Fall Conference on in Redmond, WA later this month (September 26th-28th). Karl will be joining the conference as a speaker and will be holding his 10th SMB Preday Show September 25th!

Amy Babinchak

Resident Oddball Amy Babinchak also joins the show to talk about Microsoft’s Multipoint. She explains that some MPSs may not even be aware of the offering as it is marketed to the educational sector, however it has been accessible to others for several years. Amy talks about how to set it up and under what circumstances you would select MultiPoint over regular terminal server.

The Trusted Advisor Is Dead, You Need To Be The Outsourced CIO

Feb 12

Dave Sobel, GFI Tuesday, Feb. 18, Karl talks with GFI’s Dave Sobel about the importance of MSPs to rethink their role to their clients. Dave Sobel is responsible for fostering the growth and success of GFI MAX Partners. He is regarded as a leading expert on cloud computing, mobility and virtualization, and is a featured speaker at industry events including the Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference, CompTIA and SMB Nation and is often quoted in business and technology publications. Dave authored the book Virtualization: Defined, is a contributing writer for the corporate blog, and was a regular blog contributor to both Channel Insider and Channelnomics. In 2013, Dave was recognized for the fourth consecutive year as one of the top virtualization experts globally as a Microsoft MVP for Virtualization and was appointed Chair of the Mobility Community for CompTIA.

Bob Nitrio, Computer Wallah

In our Oddballs segment, we introduce Computer Wallah Bob Nitrio! Bob got his start with computers in the early 1980s because he recognized the potential for using technology as a way to provide business solutions. Ten years later he closed his construction company to create a business consulting firm that helps small business clients improve their operations through the strategic application of technology solutions.

One of the things that has driven Bob over the years is a quest to know what solutions are available, what they do and how they can be applied to his client base. As times have changed some solutions become obsolete but there is always something new to be discovered, tested and cataloged for the day that he needs to have a ready-to-go answer for a client problem.

Join us Tuesday, Feb 18 to hear Bob, Dave, Karl, and show Producer Monica Caraway as they share MSP tips & IT news of the day!
