MPS FORECAST ON GROWTH POTENTIAL
Over time, InfoTrends, the worldwide market research and consulting firm, believes a new managed service provider will emerge. The managed service provider of the future will be a managed services solutions provider (MSSP) that delivers multiple managed solutions. This theory is supported by InfoTrends’ most recent forecast data, which identifies solutions and services as the biggest opportunity for growth.
Although solutions and services accounted for only about 25% of the total market in 2008, this share is expected to reach nearly 40% by 2013. Solutions and services typically help streamline business processes and often involve less tangible factors, like time management.
Organizations are becoming increasingly aware of the non-tangible costs of doing business, so it is no surprise that solutions and services will account for an ever-growing share of the MPS market in the future. Beyond our current forecast period, InfoTrends believes that solutions and services will overtake supplies as the largest portion of the MPS market. As such, this is where the greatest growth potential exists.
