Now, we have all witnessed some fairly major technological developments in recent years; high speed broadband, smart phones, social media, laptops that barely weigh a thing, but my favourite is Cloud.
If you’re an IT company looking to expand your product portfolio, then it would make perfect sense to consider becoming a reseller for hosted desktops, or Software-as-a Service (SaaS), as it’s also known.
