Managed services already a major channel revenue contributor

Revenues from managed services are already being enjoyed by the channel and are on the rise.

Managed services already accounts for a significant portion of business for a growing number of resellers with it set to grow in the next couple of years.

According to the latest survey last month, of its Candefero 4,000 strong reseller membership base across Europe Canalys has identified that for 20% of the channel managed services now contribute around 20% of revenues.
