A new OnePoll study commissioned by Agilitas has found that hardware is expected to make up a significant proportion of IT sales in 2020.
According to the research, two-thirds of channel leaders are confident that hardware will continue to make up an important part of their revenue streams in 2020. The greatest sales growth is expected to come from artificial intelligence, IoT, DevOps and 3D printing.
Disruption is also a major theme in the report, with much of the research examining technology support contracts and how these are managed and operated. It revealed that re-sellers expect to be selling 35% more multi-vendor solutions, with just 20% believing single solution driven operations will be a business priority by 2020.
