Industry majors sign up for Managed Services & Hosting Summit 2013

  • IBM, Arrow ECS, ccapps, Symantec, Adaptec and Webroot added as sponsors

(London, 6 August 2013) IT Europa and Angel Business Communications today announced further sponsors for the Managed Services & Hosting Summit which will be staged on 26 September 2013 at the Lancaster London Hotel. IBM, Arrow ECS, ccapps, Symantec, Adaptec and Webroot have joined AVG, Autotask, Dot Hill, EVault, Gigamon, Interxion and Tarmin as event sponsors, as interest in the Managed Services business model increases. With Managed Services revenue forecast to grow at 11.3% CAGR through to 2017, according to Insight Research, M&A activity in this segment is also accelerating as telecoms service providers, vendors and systems integrators all jostle to bring in the skills to fulfil increasing customer demand.

"With economies around the world showing no signs of any rapid growth, IT departments seem to be turning to Managed Services organisations to either take over the running of some of their IT services, allowing them to focus on new developments, or use Managed Services and the Cloud to enable them to deliver new applications without up-front capital or manpower investments," says John Chapman, Content Director for the Managed Services & Hosting Summit.

The UK Managed Services & Hosting Summit 2013 is a management-level event designed to help channel organisations identify opportunities arising from the increasing demand for managed and hosted services and to develop and strengthen partnerships aimed at supporting sales.

The event will bring together leading hardware and software vendors, hosting providers, telecommunications companies, mobile operators and web services providers involved in managed services and hosting with resellers, integrators and service providers developing their own managed services portfolio and sales of hosted solutions. The Managed Services and Hosting Summit 2013 will feature a high-level conference programme exploring the impact of new business models and the changing role of information technology within modern businesses with a strong line-up of speakers headed by Tiffani Bova, VP and Distinguished Analyst at Gartner Research, who will provide the opening keynote. These conference sessions will be augmented by boardroom sessions presented by leading vendors and service providers which will provide further insight into the opportunities for channel organisations looking to expand their managed services portfolios. Throughout the day there will be many opportunities for both sponsors and delegates to meet fellow participants within the Summit exhibition and networking area.

The Managed Services Summit 2013 will take place at The London Lancaster Hotel, London, on 26 September 2013. Resellers and integrators wishing to attend the convention and vendors, distributors or service providers interested in sponsorship opportunities can find further information at: www.mshsummit.com

According to Forrester Research, every business will become either a digital predator or digital prey by 2020. To avoid demise, organizations must rapidly create new sources of value in their end-to-end customer experiences. True digital predators also must break down information and process silos and extend digital transformation initiatives to empower employees with the digital resources needed to win, serve, and retain customers.
IoT is rapidly becoming mainstream as more and more investments are made into the platforms and technology. As this movement continues to expand and gain momentum it creates a massive wall of noise that can be difficult to sift through. Unfortunately, this inevitably makes IoT less approachable for people to get started with and can hamper efforts to integrate this key technology into your own portfolio. There are so many connected products already in place today with many hundreds more on the h...
