Editor's Note: The First RCPU of the Year

As RCPU editor Lee Pender mentioned in his last newsletter of 2009, he's off rooting for his beloved TCU Horned Frogs in the Fiesta Bowl tonight. That leaves me to ring in the new year for the newsletter.

There's probably no better way to do that than to share nuggets from one of our latest magazine features, "Marching Orders 2010." In our annual "Marching Orders" series, we ask a handful of channel luminaries to share their best advice for the coming year.

The outlook for 2010 is unsettled, but there's a good chance that after a year in which macroeconomic forces bounced us all around, execution will begin to matter again. A lot of our commentators focused on ways solution providers can execute in 2010 to make good things happen.

I'll dole out a few "Marching Orders" in each newsletter this week, but feel free to skip ahead. You can find the full feature with all nine entries online here.
