Scanning, ECM, And...

You probably know that IT spending is on the rise in 2012, but do you know which technologies are driving the upswing? This month's cover story explains how the data explosion is not "all" digital, and that scanning is a core component for every information management strategy. And indicators are that Enterprise Content Management (ECM) is a technology that is expected to outpace the overall growth of the software market. When deployed through the cloud, ECM is more attractive to resource-strapped resellers who want to add new products without investing in hardware or new personnel, and it will drive new scanning revenue to your company's business. Read this insightful article and learn to leverage one of today's biggest technology trends. As data grows, your opportunity to help customers with desktop scanning also expands, and you can help them better manage their new electronic files by offering cloud ECM systems that require almost no IT training or investment.

In addition, read up on the technologies behind Unified Communications and the opportunities available now, and how the paradigm shift in today's service offerings has created other revenue streams for you to take advatage of in order to profit.

It's all here in this issue. Enjoy the read!
