IT Training;Jul/Aug2003, Top 50 Overview p4
Trade Publication
As long-established suppliers disappear and others withdraw from certain sectors, Barrie Charles assesses how the training market will move forward. Since 2002's top 50 listing, ten of the companies featured have ceased trading, been taken over or withdrawn from the market, and over half of those listed have experienced a decrease in revenues. With those that have ceased trading, in most cases other providers have taken up their training delivery. Inevitably, though, this creates some disruption for customers and so it is important for training buyers, with the help of this supplement, to keep abreast of changes and update their plans if needed. INSET: How the Top 50 was compiled.
