2018 Trends in European Managed Services
Managed IT services continue to make steady progress in what many see as a conservative, tradition-focused channel landscape on the continent. While old-school resellers and systems integrators still accomplish a fair share of transactional hardware and software business, the managed service model is steadily winning new converts—helping make recurring-revenue businesses a European market cornerstone. Once just one of many common partner business types, the managed service model is now pre-eminent today among the European channel’s most successful and fastest-growing organisations.
The 2018 Trends in European Managed Services, a special report by SolarWinds and The 2112 Group, shows that managed services—with a core recurring-revenue model that delivers consistent earnings and predictable profits—continue to drive channel partners’ growth and profitability.
