For over a decade, TSIA has closely tracked the product and service revenue as well as the profit trends of 50 of the largest technology solutions providers in the world through our Technology & Services 50 index. This valuable information, which we aggregate from publicly reported data from a diverse list of hardware, software, and pure service companies, allows us to get an accurate view of the performance and overall state of the industry. This quarter, we’ve observed some key trends that are clearly pointing to an increasing reliance on both service revenues and profits to sustain the health and growth of most technology product companies. This SlideShare highlights 3 of these trends that can help you stay on the right path to profitable growth.
