CLP Central is excited to announce the launch of our re-envisioning of the CLP: the Consultant Learning Portal, or CLP 2.0. Our new vendor CLPs transition content to conversation, providing easy access to relevant content by market segment and solution category, along with direct links to the appropriate vendor subject matter experts for interaction, discussion and learning. Participating consultants can join these conversations to offer insights, experiences and ask additional questions.
CLP Central has been running a series of communications technology consultants market research surveys, so we can all better understand our industry.
The results of this survey show that the need for communications technology consultants continues to cut across all vertical markets and that the majority of consultants horizontally serve the needs of these markets. Only two verticals showed significant change: banking & financial services, and healthcare.
The trend is that consultants are moving back upstream to large business clients. This seems to align with the results we saw in our last question about how industry consultants are classifying themselves from telecommunications five years ago, i.e., premise-based phone systems, to broader, more strategic communications technology consulting classifications today. This aligns more with large business needs.
Welcome back to the CLP Central Communication Technology Consultants Market Research Survey. In the past few years we’ve seen big changes in the communications technology consulting industry. Five years ago 42 percent of respondents considered themselves telecommunications consultants; today that has dropped to 10 percent.
