As an MSP, you no doubt have attended one or more large IT conferences in the past few years. Vendors frequently hold events to promote their services and explain how they can add value to small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), but there are few events that are ‘vendor neutral’ and entirely focused on IT professionals, their specific interests or their personal and professional development.
After 20+ years of providing IT services to UK SMEs, I still benefit from attending events like CompTIA’s UK EMEACon16, which was held in London last week. Over the course of two days, I was able to network and learn from peers, as well as walk away with new insight on the direction of the technology industry as a whole. So what were some of the conference’s main takeaways?
