Why one VAR’s path to international growth required it to become a cloud-enabled ISV.
Like most retail technology VARs, POSitive Technology got its start selling, installing, and servicing someone else’s software running on someone else’s hardware. That was back in the early 1990s.

Channel Executive caught up with Mike Nicholson, principal and COO at POSitive Technology, for a conversation on the decisions that led to his company’s growth, and some of the missteps it made along the way.
