With the New Year, business trends for information technology-related services provide much-needed insight into strategies that can help to steer their own, as well as their partners’, businesses toward success. Gathering input from several industry experts, SearchITChannel recently published an article detailing predictions for the IT industry in 2014, which will, undoubtedly, affect the landscape for firms offering various IT services in Baltimore, as well.
The article highlights that enabling partner business to become self-sufficient in their IT needs will be a big topic in 2014. According to Diane Krakora, CEO of PartnerPath, by allowing partners to grow into self-sufficiency, vendors are given the opportunity to scale and grow their own business.
The acceleration of the front-office buyer will also be on the agenda this year, as businesses shift control of company funds away from IT departments over to line-of-business managers.
