Should MSPs Be More Like Cloud Providers
Weaver Outrage Meter (Medium)
I recently read a blog written by a government about how to properly use MSPs in a cloud environment. Now. I am not sure what background this author has but I’m assuming a good number of people read and approved of the article since it was published (for the public to read) on a government website.
I do not like attacking people directly when they have no ability to respond to the allegation but in this case, but I believe the idea raised is so contentious that it must be addressed. So, that is what I intend to do.
I won’t name the person or the organization, but I do intend to discuss the nature of the article and what it purports to encourage: namely, that MSPs ought to behave more like cloud providers.
- What attributes of the cloud provider ought to be mimicked by the MSPs?
- How do MSPs and cloud providers interact?
- If MSPs did not exist, would the cloud provider be able to service the customer?
- Do we really want MSPs to be more like cloud providers?
