Process Fusion recently partnered with Quocirca to release their latest eBook: The Cloud Print Services Market Landscape, 2021.
The report highlights key market trends for cloud print services, and recommendations for both manufacturers and independent software vendors (ISV) by evaluating different channels, cloud solution capabilities, and the company’s specific needs.
Quocirca is a primary research and analysis company specializing in the business impact of information technology and communications (ITC).
This report draws on Quocirca’s MPS 2021 Study which was conducted by 219 senior IT managers from UK, France, Germany, and the US, with responsibility for decisions relating to managed print services.
With the number of remote workers on the rise, cloud printing continues to gain momentum since traditional print management is not suited to working from home (WFH) models.
Traditional print management is complex and costly. By shifting to cloud-based print management, businesses will gain higher information security and functionality while minimizing IT costs.
Here are some key highlights from the report:
- 77 % of organizations are already using cloud-based printing services
- 41% report that all their print jobs are managed by on-premise print servers
- 39% report that they have implemented a cloud print management platform, with a further 37% planning to do so in the next 12 months.
- 67% of organizations expect to increase their use of cloud print management, with a further 5% planning to move completely to cloud printing.
- 82 % of organizations expect more than half of their IT infrastructure to be cloud-based by the end of 2021
The COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in a complete shift in the way organizations work. Businesses and MPS providers alike must look to build their relevance in the industry’s digital transformation age. It will be those that can adapt that are most likely to succeed.
