North America Computing Device Channel Forecast, 2018–2022: Direct Versus Indirect Spending

This IDC study presents a five-year forecast for the North America computing device channel market."In mature marketplaces, such as devices, sales growth and market share gains require new creative business approaches and product innovations that help them stand out from competitors. As partners focus on specific business outcomes, devices become just one element in complex multiproduct, multivendor solutions. Highlighting specific capabilities that qualify a device for specific business use cases is one approach that has been productive for vendors." — Pam Miller, director, IDC Infrastructure Channels Research
