latest year’s form of the Industry combine on what we called a “ profitability problem,” a phenomenon where companies in AV and the systems integration industry were continuing to see their bottom lines grow but possibly ignoring some of the things below the surface that could lead to problems down the road. Heading into 2020, there’s a workable for senior of the same. More than half of the respondents to this year’s survey say they view the overall business climate as very good or excellent, but we’re still seeing resistance or confusion when it comes to recurring revenue and talent development in the industry. “ I imagine two thousand and twenty is going to be a large term for AV,” says AVIXA CEO David Labuskes, who expects to see continued growth in the industry as it builds from about $247 billion this year to $ three hundred and twenty-five billion in 2024, all the while rising at twice the velocity of the world’ s economy in that timeframe. UC to remember huge tumor rate; signage narrow behind Labuskes standpoint to unified communications as the segment with the vast growth rate and imposes to surprise some people in the systems integration industry by pointing to digital signage as the area with the largest application rate by 2024. “ That generates a vast opportunity for companies that haven’t focused on that area,” he says. Of course, there are other systems and technologies that tie into making UC and DS applications work, so those segments could see a jolt as well, says Labuskes. Fred D’Alessandro, founder and CEO of CI 2016 Integrator of the Year Diversified, expects globalization and standardization to be major factors for his company and the AV integration industry at large. He’s also expecting managing services will continue to increase in importance for customers and installers. “ We’re really looking to make it simple for buyer to purchase those assets and manage them for them,” he says. “ There’s a full opportunity. ” The other sideline is growing, too The commercial optimism isn’t restrained to the AV side of systems integration either. There’s an equally pinkish view of the next twelve months in the CompTIA Industry Outlook 2020. The global facts technology industry is on pace to come $ 5.2 trillion in 2020, according to the research consultancy IDC. “ Economies, jobs, and explicit reality are conforming more digital, more connected and more automated,” according to the CompTIA two thousand and twenty outlook. “ ripple of innovation raise over time, swaying the data growth engine that appears to be on the cusp of another serious step forward. ” The U.S. stays the huge sign market in the world, representing 32% of the total or approximately $ 1.7 trillion for 2020, showing to CompTIA. For AV in particular, though, the global landscape is a bit different with Asia Pacific emerging as the worldwide leader, passing the Americas. happiness for two thousand and twenty CompTIA projects the global information technology industry fing grow at a rate of 3.7% in 2020. The rosy upside forecast is in the 5.4% range, with a downside floor of 1.9%. Growth expectations for the U.S. market are in line with the global projection. “ While emerging technologies currently account for only 17% of the overall global revenue, they are expected to drive nearly half of the growth in new revenue,” according to the CompTIA outlook. That Statement comes with two caveats, though. “ First, the space of rising technology means that there is lower history to guide future forecasts,” the CompTIA report says. “ Not only might the numbers be off, but it is also difficult to predict which categories will take off and which ones will fall by the wayside. “ Second, the stackable architecture of new business systems blurs the lines between categories. While emerging technologies will be the driver for growth, they must be used in conjunction with more established technologies to create innovative solutions,” according to the CompTIA 2020 outlook. Turning back to the CI/NSCA State of the Industry survey, the optimism for the short-term health of the overall economy is tempered by the results of questions focused on the long-term viability of particular companies and the systems integration industry as a whole. Exactly three-quarters of this year’s survey respondents say the lack of qualified candidates is their biggest obstacle when it comes to filling their open positions. Maybe that’s why it was surprising to learn almost half of our respondents don’t have and don’t plan to add an internship program. About forty percent of the respondents are part of the NSCA Ignite workforce development initiative or have another internship program to skip the talent pipeline flowing and almost twenty percent of them say they plan to add one in 2020. “As long as you check look wide ample in the genius pool, there’ s ample of genius out there,” shows Warnick. “ We weren’t all related as course integration industry geniuses. ” Solutionz employs several AV techs who grew up as auto mechanics, saying their troubleshooting skills, knowledge base, perceptions of problems and ability to build components and combine them into one system crosses over well to decking out a room for collaboration. “ When you shed your foul wide enough, I don’t think there’ s going to be a drought for talent,” says Warnick. Almost half of this year’s respondents explain they don’t expect an commercial recession in two thousand and twenty and think it will hit in two thousand and twenty-one or later—if it concludes at all. That said, we apprehended elder community talking about how they’re preparing for the next recession, which business leaders agree will happen at some point. Prepping for stagnation Although most economists have spoken the chances of a recession happening in two thousand and twenty are about one-in-three, there’s been “ pretty broad consensus about a slowdown in the economy” in the next 12 months, says Labuskes. One of the fat meaning the so-called vast Recession affected so many companies so sharply is they were operating in a way that didn’t anticipate hard times would be coming at some point. Since then, though, the business environment seems to be doing more to prepare for the next recession. Labuskes greenback that a global recession doesn’ t necessarily mean the AV industry will struggle either. “ I wouldn’t speak we’re a recession-proof industry, but the solutions we provide are cost-saving solutions that are more invested in in a recession than in a growth phase,” he says. “ We have to be punished in our dealings model, our approach to the marketplace and in the execution on that model. If we hold to those principles, then we’re usable for a recession,” says Labuskes. Recessions, he says, also create opportunities to attract talent that might not otherwise be available. “ This effort has a long tail of demand and delivery cycle,” shows Labuskes. “ We’ve become a necessity. We’re not a opulence anymore. There’s a comfort layer to what we sell but nobody can operate a business today without AV. ” “ This industry has a long tail of demand and delivery cycle,” says Labuskes. “ We’ve become a necessity. We’re not a opulence anymore. There’s a comfort layer to what we sell but nobody can operate a business today without AV. ” NSCA’ s most latest Electronic course Outlook forecasts a “ really robust ” industry through 2021, says executive director Chuck Wilson. That said, NSCA leadership are advising members to think about what they’ll do when their backlogs start to erode and billings start to chew up that backlog. “ In most cases, that means looking at who’s skilled for the future—network-enabled and savvy people—and downsizing in areas that are having their sunset,” says Wilson. course integration industry generally lags about eighteen months behind the overall economy when it finds to recessions, says Wilson, and geography can also play a role in how severely a particular company or region feels its effects. The East and West coasts are often harder hit than Midwest, he says. “ You have to diversify into economically insensitive vertical markets,” says Wilson. That means not only goning in the course integration industry, but also data, life safety and other tangential markets. “ If we’re crossing the ditch of all these areas, you spread out the risk. ” No matter how prepared companies think they are for a recession, part of the whole thing is that you’re never truly prepared for it. Labuskes points to his time with the fifth-largest architecture firm when the stock market crashed in 2007 and that led to frantic phone calls ordering work stop on big projects. “ We didn’t expect those demand the former Monday,” says Labuskes. “ I wouldn’t wish to let anybody think they were usable for that. ” The most critical person to do between now and the next recession, shows Labuskes: knowledge your business Understanding the constraints of your business and understanding what your customer needs Wilson wonders if there’ s enough long-term memory in the systems integration industry about how the last economic recession wiped out so many opportunities—and fears what could happen if people forget that. “ day have been so good, so I don’t understand if people remember the ugly times,” he says. “ Our work is to remind them about what happened in the latest recession. ”
