A. Today’s Technology, Channel Chief and MSP Partner Program News

1. Surprise Guest?: Will Kaseya CEO Fred Voccola surface at this week's Robin Robins conference in Nashville, Tennessee? That's the speculation, though we haven't heard anything official. MSPs are particularly interested in Kaseya's plans for Datto. As you'll recall, Kaseya is working to finalize the Datto buyout by the second half of 2022.

2. Top 100 Vertical Market MSPs 2022: We'll unveil the list this Thursday here.

3. Partnership - Robotic Process Automation (RPA): NCS will promote and deploy UiPath's RPA software in the Asia Pacific region. The joint go-to-market effort will "bring the power of automation to both public and private enterprises from across industries, such as telecommunications, government, and financial services, particularly in high growth markets like SingaporeAustralia, and Asia Pacific," the two companies said. Still, the enterprise RPA software market may be facing slower growth rates even as RPA for MSPs and SMBs begins to catch on. Startups such as Rewst and ElectroNeek are striving to bring the power of RPA into the MSP sector.

4. Partnership - Security and Data Protection: Kyndryl and Dell Technologies have partnered to promote security and resiliency solutions. Kyndryl spun off from IBM in November 2021, and is now a standalone enterprise MSP.
