Key Market Trends

IT and Telecom is Expected to Hold Major Share

The IT and telecom sector is a significant market for the managed application services, due to the high rate of various technological adoptions, increased frequency of confirmation of the BYOD policy, an increased need for high-end security due to the rapidly growing data among the organizations. The telecom industry has observed extensive growth during the past few years. Telecommunication companies are encountering constant pressure to deliver innovative services at lower costs to retain their customers in the competitive market.

  • According to the 2019 SD-WAN Managed Services Survey, 64% of the surveyed network and IT managers are planning to add an SD-WAN managed service in the next two years. This is because the end-users believe it will deliver better security, improved cloud application performance, and flexible management. This demand is encouraging IT and Telcom service providers to purchase hardware, software, and regular administration of their networks from a third party. Many of the SD-WAN managed service providers are differentiating themselves with a wide range of security offerings
  • According to Hazlecast Infinity Data report in collaboration with Intel, IT decision-makers identified cloud application performance (40%) as the number one opportunity to unlock profits, with financial services (49%), telecommunications (42%) and e-commerce (40%) ranking it the highest among verticals surveyed.

North America is Expected to Hold Major Share

The North American Managed Application Services market is growing due to the changing IT infrastructure landscape, especially in small and medium enterprises (SMEs), who are continually focusing on outsourcing cybersecurity solutions. For instance, Kpaul Properties LLC, one of the emerging manufacturers and distributors of IT supplies in the United States, onboarded FUJITSU to replace physical servers with a virtualized environment. This has reduced the company's cost by 15% and delivered 95% uptime. With the speedy acceleration of modern technology and the need for streamlined IT functions, an increasing number of businesses in the region find the best way to keep pace with MSP.

  • Besides, Canada is witnessing a high rise in the application of multi-Cloud environments and increased adoption of automation. In the region, Cloud, mobile, and social technologies demand that businesses take a proactive approach towards IT security, thus boosting the demands for the deployment of robust managed services that would deliver in all security management layers. Unified Communications as a Service and related Contact Center as a Service market represent a business opportunity for managed service providers. This is because emerging players offer innovative cloud-based solutions, which require a minimum investment and are easy to deploy.
  • In November 2019, Rackspace, an American managed Cloud computing company, announced that it has agreed to acquire Onica, an Amazon Web Services (AWS) Partner Network (APN) Premier Consulting Partner and AWS Managed Service Provider. This acquisition brings Onica's innovative professional services capabilities, including strategic advisory, architecture, and engineering, and application development, to the Rackspace portfolio, complementing its existing managed cloud services capabilities.
