Topic: State of the ITSM Market Research
State of the ITSM Market is the most organically searched research in the world for enterprise ITSM technology platform selection. The research covers the top 5 vendors in the ITSM Market (by market share) from a technological, financial and market perspective, so you’ll be able to learn in-depth about who the current and future leaders of this $1.5 Billion (2012 est.) market are… in order to make the right decision for your “unique” requirements.
This presentation and research is published with the permission and backing of ITSM University, an ITSM implementation and technical training company built from the ground up to be ITSM vendor agnostic.
