For the past 20 years Portland has been a go-to resource for IT Professionals. Next to the well known brands, Portland has been apt to follow less traveled roads in search for innovative software solutions and tools. During this journey we see many beautiful things that we love to share with our clients.
Sometimes clients know exactly what they want, in which case our Trading Desk goes to work to procure those licenses. At other times clients appreciate our suggestions for solutions that meet their specific requirements.
Building on our decades of experience, yet fresh and openminded approach, we continue to optimize our portfolio of preferred solutions that help IT Professionals to perform their day to day tasks quicker and more cost effective.
Our preferred portfolio provides IT tools to manage and facilitate the modern workforce, ranging from infrastructure and communications to productivity and business continuity toolsets. Portland has carefully selected and tested them and is therefore happy to recommend them to clients.
IT Professionals can't afford not to stay on top of emerging technologies and market trends. However, this requires increasing effort and time. Time that most of our clients don't have.
So we help them out by bringing best in class IT research to their doorstep. Gartner requires no further introduction in that respect. Having said that, Gartner is known for its academic approach and enterprise focus, which isn't necessarily relevant for all our clients. That's where Portland comes in. We preselect the research that is relevant for our clients and summarize key insights into more 'snackable content'.
As an example, take a look at our Managed Service Provider's Hype Cycle, listing the key emerging technologies with an expected transformational impact for the business of MSPs.
We don't believe in aggressive sales tactics or target-driven short term goals. We are in it for the long term, acting as your wingman every step of the way. So also after a deal is closed ;)
