With 2017 coming to a close, tons of predictions for the year to come are starting to flood in.
One I found particularly interesting is the potential rise of the ‘super’ or ‘uber’ (insert any related adjective here) MSP.
Our own Miguel Lopez sites two market trends for his reasoning.
As MSP business owners and veterans of the space as a whole, I’m sure this comes as no surprise to most of you. But still, I’d like to hear your thoughts on the matter, if you think this prediction is correct, and what plans you have in place to address the potential rise of super MSPs.
2018 will see the emergence of large MSPs. Here are the important trends that will modify the business landscape for MSPs
Growth in cloud computing
Migration from private to public cloud infrastructure
Increasing acquisitions related to the consolidation of tools that MSPs use to operate their businesses
Continued movement down market by Telcos and ISVs resulting in the erosion of MSP marketshare
Increasing demand for secure IT infrastructure
