What's cooking at CompTIA Annual Member Meeting (AMM) 2014? Here's the live blog — covering cloud services, managed services and the need for change among VARs, MSPs and CSPs.
First Up: Business Agility Panel featuring Jason Bystrak (director, Ingram Micro Cloud), Ryan Morris (Morris Management Partners), Vince Tinnirello (CEO, Anchor Network Solutions). Moderated by Dan Wensley, a CompTIA board member and founder of Plan 27 Inc.
