If you are involved in the technology business, the trend toward the delivery of all aspects of IT “as a service” can’t have escaped your notice. This was triggered by the arrival of the cloud a few years ago and subsequent advances in communications and applications management made it viable to provide software as a service (SaaS). The idea soon caught on and before too long, we saw infrastructure as a service (IaaS), platform as a service (PaaS) and even desktop as a service (DaaS) offerings on the market.
It was only a matter of time before IT solutions and services were made available on an as-a-service basis. Indeed, hardware as a service (HaaS) propositions have been available for some time, and Zyxel itself has now entered a partnership with Exertis UK, one of our distribution partners in Europe, to offer our products through their platform.
