Roughly 700 people — including 400 VARs, MSPs and cloud brokers — are expected to attend Ingram Micro Cloud Summit here in Scottsdale, Ariz. The Ingram Micro Cloud is expected to gain several new ISV and app partners here at the event — including the ConnectWise portfolio (ConnectWise, LabTech Software and Quosal) and perhaps some new VDI (virtual desktop integration) offerings.
I’ll be blogging live from Ingram Micro Cloud Summit through Wednesday on Talkin’ Cloud.
