Panelists nominate their biggest challenges and opportunities for the year ahead in the fourth and final part of this Top VARs video discussion

"VAR is dead, if for no other reason - Google VAR", declares CAE managing director Justin Harling in the above clip from the final part of our Top VARs discussion.
