  • Buy-ins, a credit crunch and the ‘cloud’

    The ICT sector was as dynamic as ever with company mergers, innovative products and software, new markets, non-traditional delivery models and emerging technology and services driving the companies that make up this year’s Strategic 100 list.

A review of customer, vendor and user announcements shows there is likely to be significant spending on and deployment of SaaS, open source and SOA over the next five years.
