DUBLIN, March 16 — Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Global Cloud Computing Market Is Strengthened by Telco Competition Global Telecom Insider/Vol. 4, No 2, Edition Two" report to its offering.
Service providers are well-positioned to deliver cloud services, but first they have to understand the dynamics of the sector and define clear objectives for their cloud strategies, according to a new report.
Global Cloud Computing Market Is Strengthened by Telco Competition analyzes the competitive landscape of the global cloud computing industry. It defines the major players in the space and identifies external forces that influence the level of competition. Finally, the report examines major threats and uncertainties that slow down adoption of cloud computing, particularly in the enterprise sector. The report includes two case studies that illustrate how various players in the cloud industry cooperate to provide telco customers with cloud services that they need: HP's alliance with Alcatel-Lucent and the implementation of Cisco's CloudSystem at Telus.
Competition in the cloud segment is increasing, as new players enter the marketplace, aiming to monetize opportunities related to the proliferation of cloud services, says Pyramid Analyst Dr. Ewa Romaniuk-Calkowska. Those already in the game are moving to form partnerships and strategic alliances to provide clients with integrated end-to-end solutions rather than specific elements or sub-segments of the cloud architecture. They are expanding their service suites to appeal to various customer needs and are providing management tools and building in consulting services to hide the complexity of the cloud. Many of them cater to specific verticals, such as utilities, healthcare and education, with solutions designed to solve specific problems. We recommend service providers partner with IT vendors rather than deploy their own cloud computing solutions and cooperate with software and content providers to increase the attractiveness of their offers, she adds.
