Sixth Annual Managed Services and Hosting Summit-UK Takes Place September 2017
25 November 2016
The sixth annual Managed Services and Hosting Summit-UK will take place in London on 20 September 2017. The event will bring together some of the world’s leading vendors and solution/service providers including web hosts, software vendors, telecommunications companies, and other organisations involved in working with Managed Service Providers (MSPs) and resellers to offer managed services.
The “management-level” event will be jointly managed by strategic business intelligence and news provider IT Europa and business-to-business (B2B) media, conference, awards and exhibition organiser Angel Business Communications. It is designed to “help channel organisations identify opportunities arising from the increasing demand for managed and hosted services”. It comes against a backdrop of massive growth in managed services, with forecasts of growth of around 20% in the global cloud-based managed services arena until 2020. The theme of the event will be “Creating Value with Managed Services” and will specifically address issues such as the Internet of Things (IoT) and security.
“Advances in technology, economic pressures and evolving business models are combining to fundamentally change the role of IT within businesses and the role of MSPs and other channels in delivering it,” explained the Managing Director of co-organiser IT Europa, Mr. Alan Norman. “This is creating huge opportunities, but to compete successfully in creating value for their customers, MSPs will need to adapt and evolve to ride the latest waves of technological advance.”
