Robert Sussman, joint CEO at the Integr8 Group

Q: What is the next big thing in the industry?

A: The market has matured and we now see the relevance of ‘X’-as-a-service, that being anything from software to hardware to licensing being offered as a service. A combination of on-premise customised applications being integrated with XaaS generic and standard services.

There is a strong business case, in terms of cost, efficiency of resources and proactive service delivery, to invest in outsourced managed services. This also relates to virtualisation and the alignment of resources to sustain and reinforce output and optimal use of networking and online resources.

Q: What inspires you in your job?

A: People, technology and passion inspires me.
