The bottom Line

Whilst the market for all three technology categories is comparatively young, there are some great offerings out there that could make your business more profitable or less stressful to run. As these markets mature more services will pop up that will tackle continually more niche pain points, so staying updated about these areas will in the long run help you and your business run more smoothly and hopefully at a lower cost.
