Know Your Alternatives (KYA) in Canada
It may be freezing and cloudy in Toronto, but cloud is certainly the top topic at this conference. KYA originated after Nortel went bankrupt and has now focused on having attendees learn about the alternatives between on-premise and cloud solutions. Kevin Gavin, ShoreTel CMO, hit the stage as a keynote speaker sharing his view on why choice is key, and how brilliantly simple solutions are needed for all services. I had the pleasure of hosting a breakout on the differences between the solutions. Really fun to meet up with customers from BDO, demonstrating ShoreTel Mobility used by the Winnipeg Convention Centre, and meeting so many of our channel partners. I'm off to my home town of Winnipeg where the only thing colder than the -40 degrees weather is the Molson M beer!
