The annual Interbrands survey gives an insight into the fastest growing global brands and shows that the technology and internet focused companies are making the largest gains.
Google has jumped 43% in the last year climbing into the top 10 while the other growing brands flying up the list include Amazon, Apple and Nintendo. Microsoft and IBM are both in the top three with Big Blue controversially nudging Microsoft into third this year.
As businesses look at the ways they can improve their ROI in this time of economic uncertainty the Internet has proved to be the most popular area to still achieve growth. So right from the top down we are seeing online focused enterprises remain on an upward curve.
At UKFast, sales of managed hosting are mirroring this trend. More and more companies are looking to their dedicated server solutions to give them a solid online presence that attracts a level of interest that is simply not evident offline.
It’s not surprising then that the hardware companies like HP and Dell are also growing in line with this demand. At UKFast we have noticed that dell in particular have made their solutions much more attractive to those buying on a large scale and this allows hosts to pass on the cost saving, increasing the ROI of the businesses residing on their networks.
