September 2018
Dealing With Industry Transformation & Massive Market Disruption
4 p.m. Eastern, Thursday, Sept. 27

Presented by Robert Palmer, research director of imaging, printing & document solutions, IDC

The copy and print industry continues to go through transformation in preparation for a changing market opportunity. Acquisitions and mergers have run rampant with the already completed HP/Samsung; Apex/Lexmark; Foxconn/Sharp; and Konica Minolta/Muratec acquisitions. Of course, this rash of activity is not limited to the OEM community, as dealerships are also going through a similar M&A transition. The number of industry players is contracting along with the traditional market for print and printed pages. What does the future hold? This session will look at important industry trends to answer one key question: Can we learn from history to develop a path to success? Topics covered will include:
  • Understanding the competitive vendor landscape
  • A review of vendor strategies
  • The workplace of the future
  • Just how close is the paperless office? Is a cliff coming?
Palmer is research director with IDC's imaging, printing and document solutions team. He is responsible for written research, forecasts and analysis in multiple practice areas covering managed print services, document solutions, business workflow automation and optimization, and hard-copy transformation. Palmer's research also includes a particular emphasis on the office technology channel, and transformational strategies and technologies impacting the future of the office imaging market. He has more than 25 years of experience in product management, strategic planning, market research and analysis, and forecast development within the office technology industry. Prior to joining IDC, Palmer served as chief analyst for BPO Research. Previously, he led the digital peripherals solutions practice for InfoTrends, where he was responsible for all written research, trend analysis and forecast development for office technology hardware and services. Palmer has performed extensive work in end-user and channel perceptions to inform and shape business plans, while providing strategic advice on product planning, competitive analysis and market intelligence.
