This is an exciting year for the TechTarget team. We recently attended an auspicious birthday party for UK channel publication MicroScope (@ChannelNews) at TechTarget’s London offices. MicroScope was launched in 1982, making it older than some members of our staff. Simon Quicke, Editor of MicroScope, explained that MicroScope’s longevity shows the channel market is still relevant.
