The walls are closing in on traditional system integrator (SI) opportunities. Hyperscalers and similar products-based providers are developing richer, more vertically tailored, and more flexible product sets that eat into SI revenue opportunities for solution development and deployment. These same trends also enable less technically sophisticated consultancies to develop and deploy solutions that would traditionally have needed SI capabilities. Meanwhile, the increasing sophistication of software and cloud computing better enables direct competition to SIs from providers based in lower-cost markets. Lastly, sophisticated but niche solution providers are better able to offer end-user solutions underpinned by public cloud resources. What’s a systems integrator to do? This report explores how SIs can respond to the emerging competitive landscape.

        AI, DIGITAL TRANSFORMATION AND IOT REPORTS & MORE

        Transforma Insights’ series of Digital Transformation research covers all aspects of the Digital Transformation technologies, markets and vendors that we cover, including Internet of Things (IoT) and Artificial Intelligence (AI). Technology Insight Reports provide a qualitative guide to the impact of the twelve technology families upon which we focus, Case Study Insight Reports analyse the information in the Best Practice & Vendor Selection Database, Forecast Insight Reports expand upon the data in the TAM Forecasts, Key Topic Insight Reports cover other interesting and noteworthy topics, and Vendor Insight Reports identify the relative strengths and weaknesses of vendors and show which should be top of any buyer's list when implementing Digital Transformation. A more detailed version of the Vendor Insight Reports is available for our ‘Corporate’ subscribers in the form of our Peer Benchmarking reports detailing the capabilities of vendors within the market being examined.

        Digital Transformation Reports are far from the only way that we help our clients. We offer comprehensive support, strategic insight and market intelligence for any organisation interested in Artificial Intelligence (AI), Internet of Things (IoT) and Digital Transformation (DX).
