MSP-FOCUSED EXECUTIVE COMMENTARY

When you hear about a security breach, you probably think something like, The IT department must have missed something. But increasingly, breaches are caused by factors outside of IT s control. Today, a breach is just as likely to be the result of a devious email or an unwitting employee s error as a breakdown in IT.

As the world moves to browser-based applications (whether hosted on your own server or with a provider such as Amazon), it can mean that some of your applications might be on a local server in your office and others are hosted somewhere else. For example, you may have a hosted CRM ( Customer Relationship Management ) system, while your accounting or ERP software application stays behind closed doors where it is more difficult for a hacker to gain access.

The transition to managed services from a break-fix business model can be challenging for MSPs. There is much to consider in terms of setting expectations, documenting the deliverables, and defining how the MSP s relationships with its clients will be governed under this new model.

An IT solution provider discusses a major data center growth trend that every channel IT company should be taking advantage of right now.

There are many times when VARs and MSPs need to select new products to fulfill client needs. One case in particular occurs when a vendor decides to end a product or service. In light of Intel s announcement that it will end its MX Logic antispam service on January 11 th. 2017, many MSPs are looking for a new email security solution to offer to their clients.

MSP-FOCUSED WHITE PAPERS CASE STUDIES

A stark reality facing today s businesses is the never-ending threat to cyber-security and a strategy for how to combat it. An even greater concern is damage to corporate image, consumer trust, loss of revenue, liability to customers, and the ever-increasing statutes imposed by lawmakers and agencies who point the finger at businesses for failure to take responsibility for preventing data theft.

The managed services model brings solution providers recurring revenue, deeper client engagement, and greater business stability. But the transition requires careful planning and execution to avoid pitfalls such as underpricing services, picking the wrong technology, or failing to properly communicate the change to customers. In this roadmap, we outline 10 best practices for resellers to follow when transitioning to managed services while keeping data protected throughout the process.

Recently, the Lloyd Group was looking to move its services to the cloud. The MSP was evaluating various cloud-based tools and learned about cybersecurity provider Webroot, recalls Bill Goldin, director of technology at the New York metropolitan-area company. What initially attracted Lloyd to Webroot was the lightweight nature of the vendor s antimalware solution.

ABOUT MANAGED SERVICES

Managed services are outsourced services for which the management and responsibilities are handled by a service provider. Some common managed services include professional services automation (PSA), remote monitoring and management, mobile device management, business applications, postage, transportation, database management, information services, communication services, and many more. Nearly any piece of software or business application available today can be offered as software as a service (SaaS).

A managed service provider (MSP) is an individual or organization that handles the management and upkeep of a provided service and is responsible for delivering and maintaining the service. Managed services often operate on a near-fixed or flat monthly payment model, sometimes with an initial up-front cost for setup which creates a consistent revenue stream for managed service providers. MSPs may often use a Vendor Management System (VMS) to provide both parties with detailed analytics and data about the services being provided. In addition to the VMS, the deployment and control of customers managed services is often done with specialized software known as Remote Monitoring and Management (RMM) software. The MSP business model has become more common due its success and the consistent revenue stream that it provides. Some value-added resellers (VAR) also offer products and services with a similar recurring-payment model.

Many government agencies use managed services and many fortune 500 companies take advantage of them as well. Managed services can replace the traditional off-the-shelf resale method, but switching poses many challenges including a more complex billing process and a new sales process which is more service based.

    8 Reasons Not to Get a Business Degree

    Last Updated Jan 24, 2011 5:46 PM EST

    Business degrees are hot, but you might want to reconsider your decision. Here are eight reasons why you should not major in business :

    1. Business majors don’t learn much in business school.

    That’s one of the bombshell conclusions of Academically Adrift . a new blockbuster bestseller that suggests that 45% of college students don’t learn much of anything in their first two years of college, while more than one out of three students graduate with no improvement in writing and analytical skills.

    Among the students who learn the least in college are social work, education and business majors . In contrast, the researchers found that students majoring in the humanities, social sciences, hard sciences and math do relatively well.

    2. You won’t make as much money as you think.

    When PayScale looked at starting and mid-career salaries of college graduates in dozens of college majors . business came in as the 56th best-paying college degree. It fared worse than such “impractical” college degrees as philosophy . history and American studies .

    3. The job market is crawling with business majors.

    It’s hard to stand out from the crowd when more than one out of every five new college grads is a business major . What you’re telegraphing when you major in business is that you want to make money, but do you have what it takes to some day earn that corner office?

    4. Your quality of life could suck.

    Prominent labor economists examined what Harvard Business School grads were doing 15 years after graduating and certain business majors were having a difficult time juggling career and home life. Here’s a post that I wrote about the study: The Perils of Majoring in Business .

    5. Majoring in business could hurt your MBA chances.

    Not having an undergrad business degree can actually help when applying to MBA programs . At some MBA programs less than 25% of their students possess undergrad business degrees. One study documented that business undergrads actually performed worse in MBA programs than non-business majors.

    6. You don’t need a business degree to work in business.

    You’re kidding yourself if you think a business degree gives you the skills to work in the corporate world.

    A employer survey conducted by the National Association of Colleges and Employers indicates that workplaces most value these three skills that you are usually more likely to find with a liberal arts eduction:

    • Communication skills.
    • Analytic skills.
    • Teamwork skills.

    What’s more, a survey by the Association of American Colleges and Universities found that 89% of surveyed employees said they want college students to pursue a liberal arts education.

    7. You can make more money with an economics degree.

    On PayScale’s list of the highest paying college majors, economics came in No. 10. Engineering majors dominated the rest of the top-paying degrees. Economics is one of the liberal arts so you are more likely to learn how to write and think in college, which is what employers covet in their workers.

    Illustrious econ majors include Warren Buffettt, Steve Ballmer, Ted Turner, Steve Fossett, Henry Kravis, Diane von Furstenberg, Esther Dyson, Bill Belichick and Mick Jagger

    8. Your parents want you to major in business.

    Don’t be a wuss and major in business because your parents are nagging you. If you’re pressured into majoring in business or any other major, studies show that you’ll be less likely to succeed professionally AND financially.

    Boston Business Journal names new publisher

    Carolyn M. Jones has been named publisher and market president of the Boston Business Journal, effective Wednesday. Jones has been publisher of the Albany Business Review since 1998.

    A story on the Boston Business Journal website states, Jones replaces Gale Murray. who will be rejoining American City Business Journals’ national sales organization in a senior management role. ACBJ is the parent company of the BBJ and the Albany Business Review. Murray has been publisher of the Business Journal since June 2014, and will remain based in Boston.

    I want to personally thank Gale for leading the BBJ through a period of great change. Her accomplishments were many, in a short period of time, said Michael Olivieri, executive vice president at American City Business Journals and a former publisher of the Boston Business Journal. We have asked Gale to return to our national sales operation in a management role where the pace of change is excelling and where Gale has had a significant impact in the past and will in the future.

    Over the past 17 years, Carolyn Jones has led the Albany Business Review to consistently be one of the best-performing business journals in ACBJ, Olivieri continued. Carolyn’s thoughtful leadership approach will be a great addition to Boston’s business community. Carolyn is also passionate about the important role the Boston Business Journal plays in helping the region’s business executives and entrepreneurs grow their business, advance their career, and simplify their professional lives.’

    10 Best Stock Market Investment News, Analysis Research Sites

    Ah, investing a word that can strike fear into the hearts of even the most burly and masculine of men. A subject with such a broad and potentially confusing scope of choices, it can bewilder even the most savvy of businessmen.

    Even though I consider myself well-versed in general investment information, there is a world of knowledge, terminology, and strategy that is just beyond my comprehension, and will likely always be.

    So where should I, the layman, turn to when I seek competent and comprehensive stock market investment research and analysis ?

    Top 10 Stock Market Investment Research Websites

    Keep in mind that the main focus of these sites, above all else, is equities. So if you are looking to research ETFs. mutual funds. hedge funds, or any other diversified investment type. many of these websites may not have what you are looking for.

    1. Investopedia
    If you are just beginning to learn about the world of investments, Investopedia is your one-stop shop for anything and everything. Here, you can look up definitions of terms, register for newsletters with valuable information, use their stock simulator to see how much an investment earns or loses over time, and much more. You can research stocks by company name or ticker symbol and get quite a bit of information about a desired company. They also have a neat Financial Edge section, which can help you with some of the important fundamental principles of personal finance and the markets.

    2. Yahoo! Finance
    As much as I would like to skip this one over for some of the lesser-known research portals, Yahoo! Finance is just too good. Aside from the myriad of company reports, which you are required to pay for, all of the information at Yahoo finance is free for the taking.

    3. Motley Fool
    Don t let the name bother you these guys are all business. Whether you are looking to do your own research, or prefer the advice of a seasoned veteran, The Motley Fool has it all. I tend to prefer to follow my own (sometimes idiotic) investment decisions, but if you need help, or want to see what the experts recommend, there are pay services at Motley Fool that may be a good option for you. I have not used them myself, but the few people that I know who have followed their advice have had nothing but positive things to say, and a good amount of success to boot.

    4. The Street
    If you pay any attention to the world of investing. you know the name Jim Cramer. Personally, I think he is little more than a caricature, but some people swear by him. Mr. Cramer is one of the big name contributors at The Street. That not withstanding, The Street is, in my humble opinion, the best website for investing related articles. The writers have vast knowledge and fantastic insight, without losing focus on what is important the investors for whom they write.

    5. Wall Street Journal
    For decades, the Wall Street Journal newspaper has been a staple for information and research for investors. Although most of us have done away with the daily black and white delivery method, the Wall Street Journal online delivers even more valuable information than its nearly obsolete predecessor. Nowadays, the Journal s online presence includes The Wall Street Journal. MarketWatch. Barron s. and SmartMoney. among others. All of these sites are valuable resources for investing information, especially when seeking out company-specific news.

    6. MSN Money
    Microsoft tends to be a pretty self-serving company, at least in my opinion. Even so, once you learn to glance over all of the Microsoft related news at MSN Money, what you get is another fantastic avenue for portfolio boosting. The one complaint I have with MSN Money is the formatting. When looking at stock quotes, there are no lines distinguishing ads from news or charts, which occasionally will take you off-course by clicking an advertisement by mistake.

    7. Zacks Investment Research
    Zack s does require a membership in order to get to the juicy stuff, but the membership is free and well worth the three minutes it takes to sign up. Here, you will be able to do in-depth research on both stocks and funds. You will also have access to many public and independent reports that will assist you on your quest for the perfect personal investment portfolio .

    8. Investor Guide
    Investor Guide has many of the same features you ll notice on other sites on this list, so why does it make my top ten? The stock helper tool. First, this tool helps you to determine an optimal investing strategy and style. Then, it provides a list of companies for you to research. Once your list is complete, you will see what others think of each company on your research list. Investor Guide does a great job of aggregating this information from many different sites for you. You will then evaluate the company s competition, decide what to buy, and reap the benefits.

    9. Seeking Alpha
    Seeking Alpha is amazing. My one complaint is that there is actually too much information packed into one page, which at times can make it difficult to navigate. If it weren t for the massive amount of content on Seeking Alpha, it would be much higher on this list. Company news is the main focus of the site, so if you have a list of companies to research, this is a pretty good place to start.

    10. Online Brokerages
    Personally, my account has been housed at Sharebuilder for years now, and their research tools are very good. In the beginning, they had a clumsy interface that was slow and filled with glitches. Since then, they have done an amazing job of streamlining and improving content to the point of near perfection. No matter who you invest with online, be sure to use their research tools, as most of them have easy to use interfaces with plenty of information to sort through. Some of the more popular online stock brokers include E*TRADE. TradeKing. Scottrade. and OptionsHouse .

    Final Word

    When you are looking to conduct your own investment research, closely monitor where you go online. It is very easy to end up on hot stock pick sites, penny stock investing sites, or poorly executed attempts at legitimacy. Many of these sites are fronts for someone to sell you their foolproof system or something similar. Everything I have provided above is free of charge, though a few of them offer paid services above and beyond what most of us need.

    Do you have a preferred investment research site? Tell us about them and what features you like most in the comments below.

    You are looking at Matthew Breed. He is a 30 year old sports nerd who lives in North Florida with his fiancee, Sarah. Originally in school for a Business degree that did not work out due to capricious youth and irresponsibility, he is currently “getting past” his Peter Pan syndrome and attends classes for a degree in Information Technology while working full time. His care for personal finance stems from a modest upbringing with fiscally responsible parents who highly value education and frown upon frivolity.

    heyyy . Nice post you have been shared here. I would like to look forward to the next post. Thanks for sharing .will be waiting for the next post. It helps me a lot.

    There s just so much tripe on Seeking Alpha that I ve stopped going there. Anyone can be a self-appointed expert on the site and there is a lot of pumping that goes on in the guise of analysis. Don t know how you can separate the wheat from the chaff.

    Hi, some great sites. Google’s Finance can also be included. Thoughts?

    I honestly can t imagine how you consider SeekingAlpha to be an informational site. Journalistically bankrupt. Opinions, not facts. The same useless opinions cycled over and over. Surely you can do better?

    None of your business

    Would the author of this site mind putting a DATE on his article? Or is not putting a date on it a sleazy way of milking more hits out of the page?

    I agree. Investopedia is a great resource for learning stock trading.

    Best online analysis is in INVESTOOLS at TD Ameritrade. They are now Number 1 in the industry.

    Stock Rover is a great tool for individual investors, all the data in one dashboard. And its free! Premium version isnt too expensive either

    As FatMan points out below, Seeking Alpha is garbage. Ask any CFA level analyst and you will get the same response. So much of it is agenda driven content/amateur hour content.
