Tech professionals are as confident in their businesses’ financial health and the general state of the economy as they’ve been in two years, according to a new report from CompTIA. With the $3.7 trillion global IT market poised to make significant gains this year, survey respondents remain highly encouraged about growth prospects, and are planning to increase investment in new products and technologies as a result, according to the study, which was based on a poll of executives and other professionals from nearly 650 IT companies. Key tech trends will "enter a new phase of maturity in 2015," which stands to be a pivotal year for the IT world, including the channel, the report said. "Business transformation will remain the buzzword of the moment as channel firms of all stripes continue to assess the direction of their companies in the age of cloud computing, mobility, managed services, big data, social media and other market and technology forces. Navigating new routes to market and evolving customer buying habits will challenge channel firms to focus just as much on their own branding and marketing as they will on elevating their tech skills." Here are key takeaways from the report.
