    Initiatives like BYOD and cloud will foster the development of trusting, ‘give-get’ partner relationships between IT managers and their vendors, simply due to the fact that security monitoring and managing IT services is a must, especially for companies that fall in highly regulated industries (i.e., health care, financial, etc.). It’s these relationships that will help IT managers establish service-level agreements (SLAs) and performance metrics to continuously improve the customer experience.
