Organisations from all sectors still have the opportunity to book online for this free event where a range of vendors can be assessed at a single venue, in a single afternoon.
The supplier showcase, which will take place between 13.30 and 17.30 at 76 Portland Place, coincides with the publication of two eagerly awaited reports which are now available to E-consultancy subscribers or for individual purchase.
Managed Hosting a Buyers Guide 2005 contains 127 pages of information including an analysis of the UK market as well as in-depth profiles of 13 vendors. It is thought to be the first report of its kind for the UK marketplace.
Market trends identified in the guide include:
Increased outsourcing as customers seek to focus on their own core business
An appetite for selective rather than wholesale IT outsourcing
New opportunities created by increase in e-commerce activity
Resurgence of ASP model
An increase in regulatory demands which is driving need for best-in-class services
E-consultancy has also just published a white paper called Managed Hosting Service Level Agreements Business Value & Contents which covers the vital role that SLAs can play in shaping the relationship between services providers and customers.
The report, which also covers essential content for service level agreements, was compiled following interviews with leading providers, customers and website performance monitoring companies.
Both reports are essential reading for companies who are about to embark on new relationships with hosting suppliers or who wish to evaluate their current strategy and the marketplace.
