President and CEO
For 2013, I'm looking forward to continued growth, albeit a modest recovery. Solutions providers will have to continue their move toward services (cloud, professional, design, integration, support, etc.) as a means of solving customer challenges in an increasingly complex world.
The key technologies will be BYOD, big data, collaboration and virtualization. The leaders in the SP space will have to have initiatives that solve all of these challenges. Finally, I think we will also see continued consolidation, amongst OEMs and solution providers, as the demand for complete solutions puts pressure on companies with limited focus.
