I read everything Jay McBain, principal analyst at Forrester produces (and these are long reads lemm tell ya). Then I apply the Harry filter to find a different take on his work. In reading the first part of his latest work
“Channel Software Tech Stack 2020”
where he speaks of automation like the term “plastics” in the infamous flick “The Graduate” I went down a rabbit hole in my mind that concluded the “1950’s Grey Flannel Suit” man is now the “2020’s Robotic MSP” engaged in automation, monitoring and such. Welcome to Club Harry and the way I think LOL
Moving on. The study then has an incredible listing of channel partner program “infrastructure” players with links and details (thank you Jay). And it’s all summarized in a stack chart to help you see of the different technology categories integrate and interact.
