He may be new to the security vendor, but Forkan arrives with big ideas that will shape the near future for both Symantec Canada and its partners. Check out what he’s got in mind.

Sean Kosticin of HP Canada joins the podcast to discuss a variety of development in print at HP, including the new printers introduced at its recent launch event in Shanghai, and the channel implications of its new ePrint 2.0.

As Dimension Data closes in on its fifth anniversary in the Canadian market, Wendy Lucas and Darryl Wilson – the company’s Canadian leadership team – join us to discuss the Dimension Data experience in Canada, from its first meetings in a local Starbucks to its continued growth plan for the future.

And Jon Arnold, analyst and principal at J. Arnold and Associates, joins us to discuss what he saw and heard at Mitel’s recent Partner Conference in San Diego. Mitel’s been reaching out to the channel in a big way over the last year, and the company is back in trading on the TSX.
