Research and Markets: Global Cloud Computing Market Is Strengthened by Telco Competition Defines the Major Players in the Space and Identifies External Forces
DUBLIN --(Business Wire)--
Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/08a012/global_cloud_compu)
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 their 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 cmpetition. 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 (News - Alert) 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
