I’m at Xchange 2009 today with several Symantec partners and the theme of this year’s event is “Reinvention”. In today’s business landscape, reinvention is vital to the viability of a company. The ability to find opportunities in any situation can be a company’s greatest strength. Self-analysis followed by innovation and improvement is the essence of reinvention. Solution providers today have a great opportunity to leverage efficiencies, adopt new skills and make wise investments to drive return on investment.
