IT and Business Insights for SMB Solution Providers

ChannelPro Weekly Podcast: Episode #049 - Bill & Ed's Excellent Adventure

By ChannelPro Weekly

Now, sadly, a duo instead of part of a trio, Matt and Rich blitz through several weeks of news, including the launch of Datto’s managed power product and partner marketing platform; the much-discussed demo of a Datto VDI solution at DattoCon 2017; Continuum’s acquisition by Thoma Bravo, the same private equity firm that owns competitor SolarWinds MSP; and ConnectWise’s ambitious plan to build a Lego-like customizable management platform for multiple kinds of technology solution provider.

Then Matt takes a look at some gaming hardware and software news from the E3 show, Datto CEO Austin McChord discusses IP cameras and IPOs in a recorded interview segment, and Matt showcases a failed Nintendo virtual reality product from his tech museum and some successful HP gaming notebooks. Listen closely, and you’ll also learn why getting lead generation assistance from Bill and Ed is a bad idea. Be excellent to each other, listeners!
