With so many people working from home, Device as a Service (DaaS) makes a lot of sense. That’s especially true for SMBs struggling to pay for all the additional IT support and maintenance services working from home can require.

DaaS is a big growth opportunity for tech providers. Between now and 2023, DaaS revenue worldwide should grow by an average of nearly 55% a year, reaching $66.1 billion, predicts Market Research Future.

If that sounds interesting, and if DaaS is an area where you need to bring up your own skills, Intel Partner University can help. This online training program now offers a basic Competency in Device as a Service.
