Quocirca Cloud Print Services Landscape 2020
Quocirca uncovers cloud print market trends –
The rapid adoption of cloud services has enabled businesses of all sizes to gain access to enterprise applications and infrastructure based on subscription models. This provides flexibility, scalability, reliability and improved performance, while reducing costs and freeing IT resources to focus on more strategic activities.
Taking print infrastructure to the cloud
One area that can benefit from being moved to the cloud is the print infrastructure. Cloud print services are emerging as a way of minimising the cost and improving the efficiency of operating an on-premise print infrastructure.
Flexible and scalable subscription-based pricing provides lower and more predictable costs, while IT burden is reduced as tasks are managed by a third-party cloud print services provider.
73% of organisations expect to see some level of increase in their usage of cloud for print job management, with nearly one in ten moving over completely to cloud
