Pushing Into The New Year
To hear Kaseya CEO Fred Voccola tell it, the MSP platform provider is coming off a "freaking awesome" year, and he's quite bullish on the space in 2018.
With IT spending up among small and midsize businesses, according to Kaseya research, Voccola notes that end users are beginning to demand a broader range of technology that was once seen as being confined to enterprise-class businesses.
"It kind of tracks what we saw in the enterprise from 1990 to 2007," Voccola said. "The enterprise IT infrastructure spend at that time was about five times the rate of GDP growth. In the last four or five years, we're seeing that same trend happen in small to midsize businesses."
In a wide-ranging interview with CRN, Voccola touched on a number of MSP industry topics, including Kaseya's new business intelligence tool – MSP Insights – and how the Datto-Autotask merger might affect the competitive landscape moving forward.
