CRN: Whether it's helping customers move to the cloud, wrangling data into usable insight or fending off cybersecurity attacks, CEOs across the IT industry see plenty of opportunity for sales growth for them and their partners in 2022. Solution providers and the technology vendors they partner with are in prime position to help customers solve myriad business challenges, according to the more than 100 vendor and solution provider CEOs who took part in CRN's annual CEO Outlook survey. 

Solution Providers: 
What is the biggest market opportunity your company will tackle in 2022?
We're seeing a lot of growth in a couple of different areas, particularly in digital transformation. Increasing over the last several years, we have supported our customers as a trusted digital strategist, providing management and consulting in design, planning and execution on digitizing their business and enabling it through software. With digital transformation services, we are always connecting our management consultants and our software developers with our big data team. Since success in digital transformation requires understanding both the IT infrastructure, and what's possible from a digital strategy and a transformation standpoint -- data analytics, AI and machine learning through our big data team help to maximize the opportunities. That then leads to new and differentiated technology experiences for our consumers, employees and businesses in a wide range of industries, including health care, financial services, sports, entertainment and retail. Digital transformation requires a solid foundation of IT infrastructure, so we are also seeing continued growth with services-related IT infrastructure modernization. We are getting more and more requests in this area as our customers continue to progress and advance in their digital journey, and we believe that this trend will continue to grow well into 2022.

My top priority for 2022 is:
Our people. Our people are the most valuable and the greatest resource that we have. To ensure that we continue to deliver on world-class solutions for our customers and create positive impact for our communities, we will continue to support our WWT employees and focusing on building a great place to work for ALL.
