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

1. Dell Financial Results - APEX Revenues?: Dell Technologies today is expected to announce Q3 financial results for fiscal 2023. More than a bellwether for PC shipments, Dell is also shifting to an everything-as-a-service model. We'll be watching and listening for progress in the associated Dell APEX effort, which wasn't generating much revenue at this time in November 2021.

2. FTX Bankruptcy - Thoma Bravo Reacts: Thoma Bravo CEO Orlando Bravo expressed “shock” over FTX’s implosion, according to The New York Post. The statement surfaces after multiple MSP software industry investors got stung by FTX's bankruptcy.

3. Partner Program - Robotics for E-Commerce: Osaro has launched a partner program for e-commerce robotics integrators and vendors.

4. IBM Return to Office: IBM's U.S. workers are back in the office nearly 50% of the time, and CEO Arvind Krishna would like to see that figure rise to 60%, Bloomberg reported. As long as IBM trends toward that 60% in-office figure, the company won't likely mandate a return to office for employees.
