Live from Kaseya Connect in Las Vegas!

Kaseya IT ConferenceI am enjoying my second day at Kaseya Connect in warm & sunny Las Vegas. We are joining hundreds of managed service providers and fellow sponsors for a few great days of learning more about Kaseya and how we can support the Kaseya user community with the AppNeta instant value network performance management solutions.

One thing I have found interesting about the vendors joining AppNeta at the Kaseya Connect event is the diversity.  I have seen everything from hardware, to software, to cloud services, to AV/HIP.  Seeing the variety of technologies and solutions, it is clear to me just how broad the services and capabilities are as a managed service provider.  One minute you can be uninstalling a virus from a Windows 2K (yes, i said 2K) workstation, and the next you need to lay down fresh cat5e for your new VoIP install.

Even with all of this diversity, Kaseya is doing a great job bringing us together and establishing the business need and focus on these services. I just got out of a breakout session discussing the go-to-market-  strategy for IT outsourcing;  a great way to help out the newly minted Kaseya partners adequately deploy the software in the most successful, profitable way.

Also, Kaseya has created an impressive line-up of keynote speakers.  Kaseya CEO Gerald Blackie gave a great keynote this morning and later today we have Jim Abbott speaking as well. He may have been a New York Yankee, but I am a big fan of his courage and perseverance.

I am also very excited to unveil the new AppNeta and Kaseya integration this week!  During my days as a system admin, I had a window for my SNMP devices, Backups, and lastly Kaspersky. Now with the new PathView Cloud and Kaseya technology integration, users have one integrated, end to end view into performance levels of critical applications such as VoIP, Video conferencing, IP storage and virtualization.

I am going to be in town throughout the conference.  You can find me in my stunning blue AppNeta polo shirt.  Swing by Area D in the Partner Pavilion and check out our live demo site, sign up for a personal demo, and try out our GUI on a laptop, Xoom, or iPad.  PVC (which uses Flash) on an iPad (that does not support flash?) Yep, I said it.  Come by and check it out

See you around Vegas!!!
