The BRC report Transformations and Convergence in Enterprise Markets for Networks and IT provides an essential foundation for anticipating market developments, developing robust strategies and assessing M&A opportunities.
Substantial changes in different sectors of network and IT markets are often interacting with each other to transform market landscapes and create new levels of complexity.
This report will give you a profound understanding of these changes and their underlying drivers.
By taking a broad view across multiple infrastructure and application sectors, while considering the underlying drivers in detail, the report will help you see through the many innovations emerging across the wider market, spot otherwise unexpected threats and make long term decisions with confidence.
It also helps:
Much of the report deals with how forces of maturation and convergence across different sectors create new and valuable synergies from a customer perspective. It draws on BRC's long experience of resarching enterprise purchasing decisions, further validated by detailed discussions with industry experts working successfully at VP level in service provider organisations.
While the report largely focuses on enterprise markets for network and IT services, the principles also apply to other media and technology markets.
