AUTOMATION NATION:

The "Automation Checklist" Successful MSPs Use to Quickly and Easily Launch Cloud Services and Drive New Revenue


Thursday February 16, 2012
TIME: 2:00pm ET/ 11:00am PT


Definition of Automation(Merriam-Webster’s dictionary): the technique of making an apparatus, a process or a system operate automatically.

For many of today’s Cloud MSPs, the transition from a break-fix, labor-intensive, on-premise business model to a Cloud services business model was a challenge. For MSPs now seeking to deliver Cloud Services for the first time, it can appear similarly daunting. Transforming can be hard, involving many moving parts, “to do’s”, and other obstacles that must be overcome. How will we market our new offerings? How will we provide customer support for our new Cloud services? How will we manage and provision these new services? What terms and conditions should we use? The list goes on.

What Attendees Will Learn

Yes, it sounds hard…but it doesn’t have to be. Attendees will discover that offering new Cloud services can be only days away…not months. This is true both for MSPs already in the Cloud, and for those MSPs trying to get there.

Attendees will learn that many Cloud service vendors have done the important job of doing much of the upfront “heavy lifting” for you. Attendees will be given the “MSP Automation Checklist” of technology tools and templates, streamlined processes and flexible business models to look for in choosing Cloud Vendor Partners that dramatically speed up time to market for Cloud business applications, simplify your business’s delivery of Cloud Services, and maximize the profitability of your offerings.
