Trends we’re watching in 2023:

  • Data storage has traditionally been a market with strong customer loyalty as barriers to change providers are high, but evolving market needs will lead customers to reevaluate their storage platforms.
  • The pendulum continues to swing toward decentralization of where data is generated, analyzed and stored, which heightens both complexity and opportunity for businesses to further their digital transformations.
  • IT infrastructure vendors need to diversify revenue streams as an uncertain macroeconomic environment threatens revenue and profitability. Managed services help to do so by building on vendors’ core hardware strengths to expand their addressable markets while reducing reliance on hardware unit sales.


TBR’s IT infrastructure benchmark research provides clients a comparison of vendor performance in a market, including analysis on vendor strategies, financial performance, go-to-market and resource management. The research graphically portrays comparisons of vendors by myriad metrics, calling out leaders, laggards and business models.

IT infrastructure vendors balance demand hurdles and portfolio strategy in 2022

Vendors’ portfolio strategies largely center on finding new ways to entrench themselves more deeply into customers’ IT ecosystems, helping to maintain hardware share while also opening up software and services revenue opportunities. During 2022 we have seen the honing of hardware subscription offerings, expansion of ecosystem relationships, and a race to develop competencies in edge compute use cases, all of which data center vendors hope will keep demand steady with market uncertainty looming in 2023.

With RPA market maturing, UiPath paves the way for enterprise automation opportunities enabled by partners

UiPath’s annual FORWARD conference provides a forum for the company to outline the next phase of its growth aspirations. TBR attended this year’s event, FORWARD 5, alongside 3,500 participants, including representatives from nearly 1,000 partners, and learned about UiPath’s goal to build on its position as a leading vendor in the robotic process automation market — in which it reportedly holds over one-third in market share — to become an automation platform capable of addressing enterprise transformation needs across all lines of business of an organization. To achieve this objective, UiPath’s ecosystem partners, from IT services and consulting firms like EY to cloud platforms like Microsoft, will be crucial. Similar to previous FORWARD events, UiPath reiterated its desire to scale within its existing install base — a number that now exceeds 10,500 global customers — by selling business outcomes.
