Output Management As A Service? Yes, It’s Here!
In today’s information-driven world, it can be a challenge to manage all of the content and data that is available from so many different sources, and ensure it is delivered to consumers in the appropriate format, on the right device, at the exact time required. Not to mention the limited budgets pushing IT to do more with less.
It’s no surprise companies are turning to cloud-based solutions for help. According to Garter research, 70% of CIOs are looking to change their technology and sourcing relationships in the next 2 to 3 years, with 46% working with new vendor categories such as cloud.
“Organizations are pursuing strategies because of the multidimensional value of cloud services, including values such as agility, scalability, cost benefits, innovation and business growth,” said Sid Nag, Gartner research director. “While all external-sourcing decisions will not result in a virtually automatic move to the cloud, buyers are looking to the ‘cloud first’ in their decisions, in support of time to value impact via speed of implementation.”
