It was a privilege to speak to a global audience of over 1,500 resellers and solution providers from 47 countries, courtesy of Bluestar’s Vartech 2023 in San Antonio, TX.

The business world is rife with challenges, especially in the US, where rising interest rates, rampant inflation, and labor shortages continue to wreak havoc on a company’s ability to turn a profit in the retail, hospitality, manufacturing, and healthcare verticals. This trend is expected to continue into the foreseeable future, with no end in sight.

One of the ways to combat the curve balls thrown at us is for both VARs and ISVs to expand their service offerings and form strategic partnerships to help their clients. No one VAR and ISV can do it all.

The one big difference between last year’s VARTECH and this one is AI talk. Last year, the subject of AI was met with a lukewarm response at best. With the rise of CHATGPT, the interest in AI is palpable among all verticals and levels of company leadership.
