He’s the guest on this super fun podcast where he insists on asking challenging, stimulating, controversial questions. The type of questions that everyone is afraid to ask. Why? As he puts it, where there’s mystery, there’s margin. Dave is the founder of MSP Radio, host of the Business of Tech podcast, and co-host of the Killing IT podcast. We talk about these questions and explore the channel challenges and opportunities coming from three disruptive trends in 2020. KEY TAKEAWAYS Channel Disruptors in 2020.

Like really difficult, intellectually stimulating, but challenging questions, partly because I've always said, in mystery, there's margin. @djdaveetClick To Tweet I think there's something wrong when an Amazon employee with a CompTIA certification pays more in actual taxes than Amazon the company @djdaveetClick To Tweet I really think that there is something here - helping customers be ethical, handling their customers data in a way that is core to their values and drives their business forward from that perspective. @djdaveetClick To Tweet LINKS & RESOURCES Connect with Dave on LinkedIn and Twitter Listen to MSP Radio Listen to The Killing IT Podcast The post Dave Sobel: The Top 5 Channel Disruptors In 2020 first appeared on Channel Journeys.

Now he is jumping into a new venture as an analyst and new reporter. If you haven't checked it out already, head over to MSP Radio and subscribe to The Business of Tech - his daily five-minute podcast. Great stuff. Dave mentions three important rules he's set for himself going forward: 1) Do things that are big, different, and significant 2) Don't talk to product marketing managers 3) Never sit on another pricing panel at conferences Find out what's behind these and how they affect what he's up to. I happen to know Dave has some pretty big things planned with MSP Radio, so tune in now and stay tuned.

The push is on to Channel Evolution Europe, less than three weeks away in London. It's our inaugural European show, where we'll welcome top vendors and partners to Park Plaza Victoria, Dec. 2-3.A key player in the event will be Dave Sobel, IT industry and MSP expert, most recently at SolarWinds, who is doing a couple of his own podcasts to evangelize for the channel. We sat down with him to hear what he's been up to, what he has planned for Channel Evolution Europe, and how he'll be working with Channel Partners and Channel Futures over the next few months -- not to mention pick his brain for channel-related advice.Oh, and get this: Sobel says the "trusted adviser" is dead. That ought to perk up some ears.The guys also welcome the team from Vade Secure, the email security company, to learn about new technology they're offering and get the inside scoop on the latest in phishing attacks.All that, plus we take our first look at the upcoming Channel Partners Conference & Expo in Las Vegas, slated for March 2020, and Kevin explains why he loves the three "F's" of fall so much.

We covered a broad range of future-looking topics – and how they might affect us in the small business space. Dave is an author and former managed service provider.

As our IT systems become ever more complex, with more data, devices and ways of working, the demands on our systems and ensuring they are always operating efficiently grow. This in turn presents us and our IT teams with a whole new range of management challenges.Systems management has always been a challenge for organisations, how do we keep on top of an ever-increasing amount of systems ? how do we ensure they remain secure and patched ? and how do we cope with our users and their multitude of devices and ensure we can effectively look after them?.Like most of our technology, systems management is changing, but how? And what should we expect from future management solutions?That's the subject of this weeks podcast, as I'm joined by returning guest Dave Sobel. Dave is Senior Director of Community at SolarWinds MSP.As part of this role, Dave is also charged with looking at the future of systems management and what these platforms need to include in them to continue to be relevant and useful.Dave provides some excellent insight into the way the management market is shifting and some of the technology trends that will change and improve the way we control our ever more complex yet crucial IT systems.We discuss a wide range of topics including;Why looking at the future is such an important part of the IT strategists role.Why we need to rethink how we see a "computer" and how this is leading to a proliferation of different devices with the emergence of Internet of Things (IoT).The part Artificial Intelligence is going to play in future systems management as we try to supplement our over stretched IT staff.How increased automation will be crucial as part of systems management.Finally, we look at the move to human centric rather than device centric management.We wrap up looking at how smarter systems management is going to allow us to free our IT teams to provide increased value to the business, as well as looking at a couple of areas you can focus on today, to start to look at the way you manage your systems.Hope you found the chat as interesting as I did.Until next time, thanks for listening.You'll find full show notes here:- https://wp.me/p4IvtA-1yj
Episode 17: SolarWinds’ Dave Sobel on the Importance of Channel Communities
Community is a word we often hear around the channel. Solution providers think of themselves as part of a large family. Channel events are like high school reunions and family gatherings as much as they’re learning and education venues. Through communities, vendors and partners form networks of collaborators and confidants. They gain access to resources, opportunities, and markets. And, most of all, they learn from the best – and sometimes, the worst – of their peers. SolarWinds director of community, Dave Sobel, shares insights on the importance of communities, how to build them and what vendors can get from networking their partners.
