Other important points include that the 250-499 employee segment represented the largest share among company sizes, with 47.5% of the total. This is followed by the 100-249 group with ~30% and finally the 500-999 category with ~23%.
On the Services side, PC Services are the largest segment with $800 or 28% of the total, followed by Other Managed Services $509M or 18%, and Server at $485 or 17%, Seven of the top 10 service segments top $100M, providing a good set of opportunity segments.
