The conversation also touches on major trends affecting IT companies today, from changes in vendor incentive programs to the broad industry shift to the cloud and its implications. Rune also shares his thoughts on how Brexit and other economic considerations affect Crayon’s growth strategy. He closes with a word of advice passed down from his father – something for all of us to keep in mind.
