Technology is playing an ever larger role in business operations, and IT-based services companies are expanding globally. This has created tremendous growth in the need for IT infrastructure.

At the same time, big investors are being more selective in who they back. They are less likely to invest in smaller firms and are more demanding in their ROI expectations.

For emerging to mid-sized companies needing to acquire IT equipment, this has made leasing a more realistic and affordable option.
