The Rise of Cloud Marketplaces
As the office print industry looks to recover and remain relevant in the cloud-centric, post-pandemic world, manufacturers, ISVs and channel partners will need to participate in the cloud marketplace ecosystem. To advance digital transformation in the print sector and enable vendors to capitalise on the wider cloud market opportunity, OEMs must strategically collaborate and partner with hyperscale provider marketplaces such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud Platform (GCP). The print industry must acknowledge the power of platforms that digitally link business buyers and sellers as a disruptor to their core business.
