The failing economy, presidential politics and energy costs dominated the headlines in 2008, but what stories were really important to you? Channel Insider recounts its most-read articles of the year.
Got ROI? These Vendors Do
No one likes feeling ripped off, which makes trust a big issue among business-technology consumers. With research generated by our sister publication, CIO Insight, Channel Insider produced this report, "Top 10 Tech Vendors for ROI," which showed how end users perceive the intrinsic value of products produced by leading technology vendors. The list shows why it’s sometimes easier to sell a more expensive brand because of perceived ROI.
Finally, Channel Insider’s Products of the Year for 2008. Channel Insider surveyed hundreds of solution providers for their picks for the best products in nearly three dozen categories. We ranked the products based on profitability, ease of integration, quality of technology and ease of use. The result is the most comprehensive ranking of channel-ready technologies in the widest range of categories.
