Topic 1 - Welcome to the show. Before we talk about Nerdio, tell us about your background prior to joining the company, and about your focus today.
Topic 2 - We spend quite a bit of time on this show talking about the technology offerings of Azure (and other clouds). Give us a sense of what the partner ecosystem of companies building enabling services on Azure looks like today.
Topic 3 - Lets talk about how Nerdio interacts between Azure services and Managed Service Providers (MSPs). Help us understand the interaction between that ecosystem.
Topic 4 - Traditionally, MSPs had the advantage of being regionally close to customers, and having some ability to differentiate based on vertical markets. How has their world evolved over time, what are their biggest struggles today, and how does Nerdio help them be more successful?
Topic 5 - We often look at Azure holistically, through the broad lens of 100s of services. Is it better to look at them in groups of services, targeting a specific market segment or market vertical?
