11.Panel Discussion - Preliminary Questions Q: How much help can you give me during pre-sales? I don’t know all the technology as well as I need to yet. Q: I am a VAR/MSP that is new to establishing an IaaS practice. I have a wealth of end customers that are likely relevant for the conversation. How can these Services help me open the door with real data and propose to them how an IaaS solution may be beneficial to their businesses?
12.Panel Discussion - Preliminary Questions Q: Why is a cloud assessment necessary instead of a data center assessment or by using tools from my RMM/PSA tool? Q: Buy or Build? What are the services that a partner should try to provide vs outsourcing? Q: Can you mentor my services team through the process so that we can do it next time?
