Moving And Shaking
The second quarter of 2019 proved fruitful for some of the largest vendors in the IT operations and networking software arenas, according to market research and business solutions firm The NPD Group, which tracks monthly sales data from the largest distributors and VARs in North America.
Nearly every vendor on Port Washington, N.Y.-based NPD’s list this time around posted sales gains, with some slight wins and other vendors, such as IBM and Cisco, registering impressive revenues thanks to their channel partners. The Q2 2019 market was dominated once again by software powerhouses VMware and Microsoft, but other players, like Google, are also starting to give the incumbents a run for their money.
Here are NPD’s top ranking of the top five networking and IT operations vendors that sold the most IT operations and networking software during the second quarter.
