According to market researchers at IDC, the information and communications industry is in the midst of a once every 20-25 years change. Factors that are contributing to that change include mobile devices, cloud, big data analytics and social technologies.

And INCo expects the pace of change will grow as those who are planning to put these ideas to use overcome obstacles to their potential and begin to realise business benefits.

When these technologies are developed as applications and solutions for all businesses and consumers to use, then the revolution will gather pace.

Take the move to BYOD. Bring Your Own Device is a powerful force right now in every company where collaboration is important, and mirrors the trend away from static workers. But it comes with a need for new policies that safeguard corporate data.

Factors like these explain why the change has so far meant more evolution than revolution. But as companies acquire knowledge, and consultants, systems implementors and others acquire experience, the pace of change will increase.

INCo is the direct marketing, business development and lead generation company of choice for commercially aware and agile IT, communications and consulting companies.

Because of its continuous contact with key figures in the buying community across the spectrum from SME to FTSE100 listed organisations, it provides its clients with market assessment and a ‘temperature check’ for technologies and products, as well as real, properly-qualified sales leads.

Right now, according to INCo CEO, Neil Ritchie, the market is looking for leaders; those who can help interpret and help to manage the development of future applications which drive business forward.

“Many forward thinking businesses are finding a greater need for strategic direction, as well as a need for help in responding to change. It is clear that they are starting to think of their workforce and client base as totally mobile and as such new systems, processes and possibilities are starting to emerge.”

“INCo shares these findings with our clients to help them capitalise on change, to find immediate sales opportunites, and to build a pipeline for future success.”
