synnexSynnex, in a potential competitive move against Ingram Micro Seismic, has tapped former MSP Services Network (MSPSN) CEO Amy Luby to assist the distributor's managed services efforts. The initiative also involves itControl Solutions Inc. Here are some preliminary details.

First, a bunch of background:
I've got emails into all the key players about Synnex's next managed services moves. Sources say the efforts include new NOC and help desk offerings. Also, I'm catching up with current MSPSN CEO Gerard Kane the week of January 25 for an update on that company's business strategy.

The bigger question: Can Synnex compete effectively with Ingram Micro Seismic and other Master MSPs? I must concede: I haven't heard much from the Synnex team. But I also have to do a better job reaching out to them pro-actively. I'll share more perspectives as sources get back to me.
