MSP Technology to Watch as a New Decade Dawns

Business, MSP
2020 New Year

It’s the end of one decade, and the dawn of the next. Let’s step back from the day-to-day firefighting and crises to consider how far we’ve come in the past ten years, as well as what the future holds for the next ten.

When we flipped our calendars to January 2010, many technologies we now take for granted either didn’t exist or were still in their infancy. No one had heard of an iPad. There were no electric cars on the streets, much less slick looking Teslas. We had no idea who Siri was. There were no Chromebooks flying off the shelves of Best Buy.

Closer to the world of MSPs, many of today’s givens hadn’t yet made their debuts. Microsoft Office 365 was still years away. Massive thefts of millions of credentials were unheard of. Ransomware sounded like clothing for kidnappers.

Seven shifts we’ve seen

Much has changed since 2010, but these are the areas that have impacted MSPs the most during this time.

Cloud computing

Amazon and then Google had already dipped their toes into the world of cloud computing, but Microsoft launched Azure in February 2010. Cloud computing was no longer just for scrappy startups and disruptors.

At that time 60% of companies were considering using the cloud. Today 94% of companies aren’t just considering it … they’re already doing it.
