This year’s CDN Top 100 awards gala was initiated by two workshops, one on the Canadian cloud channel, and another on Windows Server 2003 migration opportunities.
IDC’s David Senf led the workshop on Canadian Cloud Channel Impact Study Findings which were based on a joint CDN/IDC survey assessing the impact of cloud on the channel.
