If you could be anyone else for a week, who would you be and what would you do? Ludwig van Beethoven so I could write and perform a symphony - how amazing that must feel.

What do you see as the channel's biggest challenge in 2012? A challenge and opportunity: winning tighter budgets by demonstrating technology investments save money medium-to-long term. There are still many companies who have not yet virtualised, which is a great opportunity for VARs to focus on.
