As the ticker clicks down to H-hour there is a ton of pressure to migrate away from XP. There is, of course, a lot to justify that. As of April 9 th , Microsoft will stop supporting XP . That means no new patches to discovered vulnerabilities, no support, no bug fixes, no nothing. If you’re on XP you’re on your own. Moreover, Microsoft may actually expose new vulnerabilities for XP users with the patches they provide for more recent operating systems.   But that’s not the whole story, especially for SMBs.   “It’s not going to turn into a pumpkin overnight,” says Khaled Farhang, Owner, eGuard Technology Services Inc. , a Microsoft Certified partner, provides IT services provider to SMBs and non-profits in the Washington, DC area , downplaying the hype that has overtaken the industry. “T here are plenty of companies out there that are protecting operating systems...

Top Strategies for Building a Profitable Managed Services Business


In recent years, industry experts have been urging VARs to position their organizations for growth by adding new solutions to their technology toolboxes or expanding into new vertical segments. However, a more critical move to consider is a migration from an exclusively break-fix model to one in which channel players function not only as traditional solution providers, but also as managed services providers (MSPs).
