The initiative is ultimately designed to provide partners with the tools to build campaigns and offer market insights which enable them to offer strategic advice to prospects on the new technologies needed to best future-proof their business, improve productivity and generate growth.
Andy Lockwood, Product Delivery and Marketing Director at TalkTalk Business said: "The study is a first of its kind and will provide us with a comprehensive view of the current state of the UK's Telecomms and IT infrastructure.
"The report will enable us to really get under the skin of how partners can best support UK businesses and realise how technologically advanced they currently are - providing a national channel benchmark.
"It will also investigate how the channel can help end users overcome perceived IT barriers, taking a closer look at issues such as awareness and access to hosted cloud solutions and the importance of IT strategy at Board level. The study is a great opportunity for partners to assess where they are at in the IT telecoms and broadband market, whilst getting an insight into future opportunities to generate new and existing business and increase margin."
