Gartner, a company that deliver actionable, objective insight to executives and their team has issued this publication that may help IT leaders to navigate the ITAD market, assess growing compliance risks and identify representative ITAD providers.   

Representative Vendors listed are identified to provide readers with an overview of the ITAD market and its offerings. The Market Guide contains a presentation of key findings and recommendations including the risks to avoid, areas of focus, and insights on future industry challenges and concerns.

According to Gartner “IT asset disposition (ITAD) processes and service providers are gaining CxO attention as the circular economy, particularly reuse of IT assets and components, helps mitigate Scope 3 emissions and attain sustainability/e-waste targets.” Gartner recommends “engaging with ITAD service providers to leverage the superior environmental sustainability characteristics of asset reuse as your primary disposition process”.

The inclusion of sustainability considerations in the 2023 report is well received by SLS and we believe this reflects our prominence in the decision-making process of today’s IT leaders.
