During two conversations this week, I heard and read reassuring statements about the Australian managed services market. While most managed services pundits see slowing growth in the North American market, anecdotal evidence suggests the Australian market is accelerating.
N-able CEO Gavin Garbutt during a phone conversation on April 7 echoed a theme I've been hearing from multiple executives in recent weeks: The best North American MSPs continue to generate record quarterly results, but growth is becoming harder to maintain, and many "average" MSPs are struggling.
But when I asked about Australia, Garbutt's mood went from good to great. Although Australia's IT market is roughly one-tenth the size of the US market, Garbutt and N-able's rivals say Australia MSP deployments continue to accelerate. Garbutt mentioned a number of wins in the region to me.
Meanwhile, At Kaseya...
Another case in point: Kaseya has recruited Ray McIntyre as its new regional sales manager for Australia and New Zealand. McIntyre, a Computer Associates veteran, reports to Tim Dickinson, regional manager for Kaseya Australia and New Zealand.
Dickinson and I traded email on April 8. His key message: The Australia and New Zealand managed services market continue to accelerate, and Kaseya recruited McIntyre to help further accelerate that growth.
