ChannelPro Weekly Podcast: Episode #144 - The Mustache Crisis

By ChannelPro Weekly

Think COVID-19 can’t make things much worse? Wait until people without access to a barber start showing up in big 70s-style mustaches again. That’s just one of the dangers Matt and Rich discuss this week with their guest host, cloud entrepreneur and consultant Jamison West. In an interview with Forrester analyst Jay McBain, they also explore the sobering potential impact of the coronavirus recession on the channel’s long-term future. 

That comes after a look at NetApp’s acquisition of CloudJumper, RapidFire Tools’ new work-from-home security assessment solution, and Tech Data’s bullish outlook on endpoint solutions, and before a discussion about the advantages of providing cloud solutions versus selling cloud products. Take a listen! And then, if you’re growing a mustache, please shave it off.
