Quocirca’s Cloud Print Services 2020 report reveals the opportunities for managed print service (MPS) providers and their customers in transitioning to a cloud-based print infrastructure. The report highlights the key offerings from manufacturers and Independent Software Vendors (ISVs) in the market and discusses the potential for cloud to disrupt the traditional model of procuring and managing the print infrastructure.
The rapid adoption of cloud services has enabled businesses of all sizes to gain access to enterprise applications and infrastructure based on subscription models. This provides flexibility, scalability, reliability and improved performance, while reducing costs and freeing IT resources to focus on more strategic activities. Increasingly, hybrid cloud – a mixture of private and multiple public cloud platforms – will become the reality for many organisations as they look to integrate legacy environments. One area that can benefit from being moved to the cloud is the print infrastructure.
