 Let’s face it. The COVID-19 pandemic is going to determine technology winners and losers like every recession does. We are predicting one of the winners and an opportunity you need to double-down on NOW is the Internet-of-Things. Why? Because the foundation for IoT is to reduce costs and increase safety.

 Finally, we are seeing the marriage between voice and data. The surge in online conferencing solutions (10x in the pandemic) has fundamentally changed the way we work. We discuss basic features and functionality of different online conferencing solutions; security and the panel will share real world MSP experiences in the communications revolution.

Bonus – we will do some geeking such as what is the proper way to implement a Remote Management and Monitoring tool to make your support for remote workers possible?
