This is the first time Autotask is hosting its annual user event near the West Coast. I believe the previous events were in Tennessee; Miami (twice); and Orlando, Fla.
Autotask Community Live typically blends a company update from CEO Mark Cattini, technical training, and business education from Autotask and its technology partners.
Autotask has spent the past year or so marching forward on an international strategy, localizing its cloud platform for multiple markets in Europe, Australia and elsewhere. But Cattini and DiCostanzo have been quick to note that Autotask pumps the international revenues back into R&D and support, which ensures North America MSPs continue to see key benefits as well.
The channel partner conference schedule, meanwhile, remains extremely crowded for 2013. The week of Autotask Community Live, MSPmentor, The VAR Guy and Talkin' Cloud also expect to track such events as:
- June 3-6: Cisco Partner Summit, Boston
- June 3-5: LabTech Automation Nation, Orlando, Fla.
- June 3-6: Microsoft TechEd, New Orleans
