10 Predictions For 2008 From VARBusiness 500 Execs


CXTEC, No. 195 on the 2007 VARBusiness 500

"Overall, we are predicting increased spending in areas such as wireless and security, as well as in the data center environment, with vertical markets -- Healthcare, Government, and Education -- increasing dramatically. However, some of our clients are taking a 'wait-and-see' approach to larger projects such as Voice over Internet Protocol, and a number of customers are focusing on maintaining the longevity of their technology investments -- looking for legacy support and considering refurbished options such as Cisco Certified Refurbished. This approach enables them to maintain current core infrastructures in order to shift budget to more advanced technologies when required."
