This year, JumpCloud is hitting the road with in-person events. At the Cloud Directory 101: Access, Granted roadshow, partners and IT admins will come together to learn about the product and get hands-on experience. 

IT admins will get hands-on training on the JumpCloud product, and learn how to leverage it for use in their businesses. For partners, you’ll learn best practices and techniques so you can securely administer, scale, and grow your service offerings using JumpCloud’s cloud directory platform. You’ll also get to network with and hear from potential customers. 

Join us in-person in a city near you for this free, day-long event to network with other MSPs and clients,  learn marketing and sales promotion techniques, and elevate your business to the next level with JumpCloud. 

What’s In It For You?

There’s a ton of reasons to get involved in a Cloud Directory 101: Access, Granted event near you, but here’s 3 of our favorites: 

  • Demonstrate | We will begin the afternoon session with a technical deep dive into the platform, designed for both IT admins and MSPs. Potential and existing JumpCloud users will be able to work in a live sandbox format, learning best practices to optimize their environment and getting to ask questions of our technical experts. 
  • Educate | The morning will kick off with an overview of the JumpCloud platform, and how IT admins can benefit from implementing it in their organizations. You’ll also hear firsthand from JumpCloud users and customers to better understand their needs and pain points. In the afternoon, we’ll have an educational sales and marketing training focused on MSPs. Teams will work together to create sales and marketing strategies that they will present to the class, and can implement in their own businesses post-event.
  • Collaborate | JumpCloud gives you access to thousands of MSPs and IT admins like yourself to connect with for business advice, deeper customer understanding, marketing ideas, and more. The day will be full of collaborating with local peers, and includes free lunch and a networking happy hour.

For MSPs, what are your most important feature categories or services that need to integrate with JumpCloud? For customers, what need have you identified in your organization that JumpCloud may be a solution for? 
  • Bring a laptop | Many sessions include opportunities for you to use the product live. Bring your laptop to set up your sandboxing environment and walk through the portal with our experts. 
  • Evaluate your security posture | Do a mental audit of your current processes, and what you’d like to see changed. What common tasks take up most of your day as an admin?
