SMB and MSP Partner Trends in 2022: Dell Expert Network Perspectives

At first glance, some familiar trends — remote work, cloud computing, data protection, cybersecurity — continue strong in the SMB technology market. But take a closer look and you’ll see some key nuances that you may have previously overlooked, according to Katy Drozd, a complex solutions specialist at Dell Technologies.

Indeed, partners raced to set up remote network systems for customers when the global pandemic began. Fast forward to mid-2022, and those partners are now seeking new ways to harden, protect and scale those hybrid networks. But that’s not all. MSPs within the Dell Expert Network are finding net-new customers that are just launching their businesses, while revisiting older customers that want to modernize their systems, Drozd points out in this ChannelE2E podcast:
