Emma de Sousa, Phil Doye and Graeme Watt will discuss the digital transformation opportunity facing the channel in a CRN panel debate next Monday.

The pandemic is widely credited with accelerating digital transformation by forcing more organisations to put technology at the heart of what they do.

In the panel, the trio of top executives - representing Insight, boxxe and Softcat respectively - share their views on how resellers and MSPs can best capitalise on this trend, and also assess the health of the industry heading into 2021. A snippet from their debate can be viewed above.

Watt said that although the COVID slump hadn't been as deep as Softcat's worst-case modelling, the LSE-listed firm had expected the recovery to be "a lot quicker".

"I think it's going to be choppy and we've just got to stay on our toes," he said.

Softcat is still on course to grow headcount by 10 per cent in its current year, however, Watt said, adding that tech providers should have "one eye on the mid-term". "I think there's no doubt that technology is a super-important industry and will continue to be so," he said.

The panel discussion will take place at 10am on Monday 21 September as part of CRN's Deskflix on Digital Transformation. Register here to view the debate.
