GSX Solutions had the opportunity to attend MSPWorld this past week at the Cosmopolitan Hotel and Casino in sunny Las Vegas. MSPWorld is the oldest Managed Service Provider event in the IT Channel, which was created, directed and delivered by MSPs for the purposes of providing the best of breed content to their peers. This was the first time that GSX Solutions sponsored MSPWorld and certainly will not be the last! Managed Service Providers have been utilizing GSX Monitor & Analyzer to deliver the highest level of service to their customers for over 15 years. As our partner channel continues to evolve and we are working with more and more MSPs, this was a great opportunity to meet with existing partners while also showcasing the new functionality in our solution that was developed with Service Providers in mind.
Last week Thursday & Friday GSX had the pleasure of attending another SharePoint Technology Conference here in Boston with our Alliance partner Intlock. This was the event’s 6th East Coast version of SPTechCon that included more than 400 attendees and 50+ vendors. The event felt a bit different for us this year as our US office is located just .7 miles down the street from the exhibit hall here in Boston! It is always a pleasure networking with other local attendees, partners and exhibitors from the local area and of course making recommendations to visitors of where to eat, drink and relax in our great city.

The Cloud is everywhere, in every company in different formats, private, hybrid or public. The Cloud is a shiny option to consider but companies must be prepared in order to maintain the visibility and the control that you originally had on the applications when they were hosted on-premise.
The rapid growth of the cloud market is leading to the emergence of new services, new ways for services provisioning and new interaction models both amongst cloud providers and service ecosystems using cloud resources.
The Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference in Houston was an enlightening event for us all! As the US Channel Manager at GSX, it was a great event to learn, network and recruit new Microsoft Partners. Just like any large technology conference, the days started early and ended very late, but it really flies by. We attended plenty of meetings, sessions, networking events and parties hosted by the event as well...It was a great week!
