The IT landscape is a vast and always-evolving ecosystem, filled with a multitude of players, products, and services. For MSPs and IT professionals, staying informed about this intricate web of industry knowledge is not only educational, but necessary to remain competitive and successful in the growing market.
To that end, we’re excited to announce the release of the 2023 Channel Technology Map, an invaluable resource we created in partnership with Channel Program. The map categorizes and represents industry vendors by each product specialty, offering a high-level but comprehensive overview of the entire IT channel landscape.
Powered by Real Insights from Real MSPs
Imagine having the entire IT channel universe laid out before you on an 8×10-foot map. That’s precisely what the 2023 Channel Technology Map offers — an extensive and 360-degree view of the IT vertical. But it’s not just about size of the map; it’s about the substance.
What sets this map apart is that it’s more than a collection of data. It’s a reflection of real insights derived from more than 3,000 MSP reviews on Channel Program. These reviews provide unparalleled insights into vendor performance, helping MSPs and vendors make better, more informed business decisions.
Simply put, in an industry driven by innovation and competition, access to this knowledge level can be a game-changer.
Providing a Map to Success
Whether you’re a seasoned MSP expert or a newcomer to the space, we encourage you to use the map as a critical tool to help you sharpen your knowledge, expertise, experience, and not least of all – your business – in a myriad of ways:
Given the visual format, the map simplifies a large quantity of complex information, allowing MSPs and IT professionals to quickly identify vendor strengths, weaknesses, and areas of expertise which, by extension, enables them to make more strategic and informed business decisions.
Building strong partnerships is a cornerstone of success in the IT channel. With the map’s insights, you can identify potential partners whose strengths align with your business goals. It’s like having a matchmaking service for IT professionals.
Every IT professional knows that sticking to the status quo is not an option (at least, not if you want your business to thrive). The IT channel is always shape-shifting and new growth opportunities are constantly emerging, which can make it difficult to know exactly when and where these opportunities lie. Fortunately, the map highlights these areas of growth and innovation for you, helping you stay ahead of the curve.
An Ongoing, Community-Driven Initiative
As technology and the IT channel continue to advance, and as community perception and sentiments shift, our goal with Channel Program is to keep this map updated to reflect those changes, ensuring that IT professionals always have a reliable compass to navigate the sometimes murky waters of our vertical.
