Highlights from Automation Nation 2017

Posted by Erin Shaw Crowley on Jun 26, 2017 11:44:27 AM

Now that I'm back in the office and have had a chance to recover from a busy week on the road, I wanted to take a look back at our trip to Automation Nation in Orlando, Florida. It was another memorable event!

As one of the gold sponsors, the Intronis MSP Solutions by Barracuda team got to enjoy so many different aspects of the event. We were excited to host the recharge lounge again this year. This space was set aside so attendees to could stop by and charge up various devices while relaxing, catching up on work, or learning more about the complete data protection Intronis MSP Solutions offers. The recharge lounge was outside the exhibit hall for the first time this year, and we had tons of traffic and plenty of in-depth conversations. Plus, our booth was located close to the Automate Hack-A-Thon, so we had front row seat to the fun!

Video: Celebrate summer with a steak lunch from Intronis MSP Solutions

Posted by Erin Shaw Crowley on May 31, 2017 10:39:36 AM

As we head into the summer months, the perception is that business slows down, and everyone heads out on vacation or takes time off to spend their families. While that may be true for some folks, it's not the case for the events team at Intronis MSP Solutions by Barracuda — especially around our local lunch events. Between Memorial Day and Labor Day the Intronis team will be hosting lunches in about 30 cities across the U.S. and Canada, which, yes, is a whole lot of steak and travel! Haven't gotten a chance to kick off the summer by throwing some steaks on the grill? Why not join us for lunch?

Reflections from CompTIA's Annual Member Meeting

Posted by Erin Shaw Crowley on Mar 27, 2017 11:32:00 AM

“We have the ability to do such good in the world in what we do — I love it!” said Tracy Pound, CompTIA Member of the Year. That quote got me thinking—what do I do that does such good to the world? I'm just the marketing manager at a technology company that helps MSPs, but then I realized that is exactly how I do good in the world.

As a channel vendor we can get caught up thinking about how we compare to our competitors, how we're going to close the next deal, what sets us apart. Yes, these things are important and help keep our company going (and help keep me employeed), but in the end it's really all about our customers and how we can help them. Our products keep our partners businesses alive and thriving in their communities, and adding new technologies and integrations can help build a career path for an IT professional. These are just a few of the things I thought about while attending my first CompTIA Annual Member Meeting last week.

Posted by Erin Shaw Crowley on Jan 19, 2016 8:30:00 AM

As the events manager here at Intronis, I’m constantly looking for new opportunities to connect with IT service providers, so I’m particularly excited about this year’s events calendar. It’s action-packed, with everything from local lunches and user groups to training boot camps and industry-leading conferences.

When I think about the different events we’ll be attending this year, it makes me realize how many of them present opportunities for MSPs to get involved in the IT community, learn about new products, and connect with their vendors.

Intronis local lunches: Ready for more!

Posted by Erin Shaw Crowley on Sep 30, 2015 10:00:00 AM

I’ve logged so many frequent flier miles this month, crisscrossing the country traveling from Boston to Chicago to New Jersey to Las Vegas and more to help kick off our Intronis local lunch tour. Today, I’m in Phoenix, and I’m looking forward to getting home for a few days before I hit the road again for, you guessed it, more lunches!

The Intronis local lunches have been going well, and we’ve had a blast traveling all over the U.S. to meet with a variety of managed service providers, both current partners and potential customers. I’ve really enjoyed getting to visit so many new places and spend time talking to customers in person. It’s always nice to put faces to names! (And, hey, who doesn’t like a nice steak lunch?)

Posted by Erin Shaw Crowley on Aug 7, 2015 12:04:00 PM

I just got back to the office after an action-packed trip to Chicago for CompTIA ChannelCon 2015. This was one of my favorite events of the year (so far) because it gave us a chance to not only meet with a good mix of current partners and prospects, but also sit down with a variety of IT thought leaders to discuss the future of the industry and focus on growing the community.

There were so many memorable moments and great conversations throughout the conference, but here are the five that standout the most for me.
