Towards the end of 2022, Gartner set out its IT spending predictions for the coming year with an expectation of 5% growth. Yet closer examination of the data suggests that instead of enterprise IT spending being “recession-proof”, as EU wide inflation tops 11%, this limited growth prediction seems less impressive. A further interpretation suggests that the heavy lift for IT growth is carried largely by services and software.
In tougher economic times, the perceived wisdom is that CAPEX declines while OPEX increases and reports from IT suppliers suggest that this is the case again. The desire for OPEX based solution is good news for the MSP community but competition is rife. To capitalise on the opportunity requires better strategies for not just winning new business but also streamlining costs to counter aggressive pricing from rivals. This timely webinar sponsored by ConnectWise explores the overall state of the IT market along with insights for both new and established MSPs to adapt to the current economic climate.
Key areas of discussion include:
• Portfolio restructuring: Viable offerings to capitalise on the shift to services and software
• Cost control: Unified service delivery and toolset integration to improve staff productivity
• Service upselling: How to better integrate an MSP portfolio to deliver higher ARPU
• Marketing: Top tips for capturing ‘net new’ and boosting service revenues in 2023!
