Another argument we really feel is about Managed Service Providers: in our vision, product and software resellers representing the spine of the IT world now have to evolve with an approach closer to the cloud. Becoming a service provider capable of taking on all the company needs in spite of an all-embracing monthly fee. This approach requires both a different way of working and interacting with clients and specific tools that can help the overall management. In this sense, the United States are way ahead than us, so there are many products of this kind that we’d like to talk about. In the next issues we will focus on these topics and provide further information to let you understand pros and cons of such approach.
Naturally every time one faces a different business model it’s important to ponder about legal aspects, too. And not only that: lots of you are perhaps thinking about moving your clients’ machines into the cloud and directly or indirectly managing them with a single tenant or multitenant architecture, and would like to understand whether to obey some laws or regulation in order to proceed. Some others suggested to pay the ransom for a ransomware attack while not being really conscious about possible consequences. Everytime we talk about these (and others) topics it’s really important to understand, from a legal standpoint, what is the best approach in order not to incur in risks or even felonies (like paying a ransom!), thus avoiding to put your business at risk.
Starting with the next issue,a lawyer will help us with some specific articles, trying to explain us in the clearest and simplest way the different topics.
And now, enjoy this shiny new issue 8!
