Tech Talk | From On-Premises to Azure: A Roadmap for MSPs to Succeed in the Cloud

Date: Tuesday, August 6th at 11am PT / 2pm ET

Times have changed for Managed Service Providers (MSPs). Gone are the days when selling, installing, and managing on-premises hardware was a competitive strategy—or even standard practice. Third-party providers who remotely manage customers' information technology infrastructure and end-user systems know that the competitive move is to the cloud. But they don't always know the best way to build a thriving practice in a cloud-first world.

In this information-packed Tech Talk, veteran technology journalist John K. Waters talks with MSP, Azure, Virtual Desktop expert Will Ominsky about the opportunities and challenges MSPs face in the cloud. Their conversation will cover the key pain points faced by MSPs, including managing and securing hybrid work environments and extending service reach beyond local boundaries.

Key topics:

  • Cloud Migration Strategies: Best practices for transitioning from private data centers to Microsoft Azure.
  • Expanding Service Reach: Techniques for MSPs to serve clients beyond their immediate geographic area.
  • Hybrid Work Management: Addressing the challenges of supporting users across diverse locations.
  • Security in the Cloud: Understanding the shared responsibility model and ensuring robust security measures.
  • Overcoming Resistance: Solutions to internal resistance within MSPs, from technical staff's reluctance to adopt cloud technologies to budget constraints.

Our discussion will include real-world examples and actionable insights, providing attendees with a clear roadmap to avoid common pitfalls and ensure a successful cloud migration. Join us!
