Cloud Brokers Will Reshape The Cloud
Getting Ready For The Future Cloud Business Models
A Commissioned Study conducted by Forrester Consulting on behalf of Cordys
In this in-depth analysis of the cloud service provider market, Forrester interviewed 10 cloud strategists at major telecommunications, system integrators, and dedicated cloud provider enterprises in Europe and North America to evaluate the acceptance of, understanding of, and demand for the cloud broker model.
Forrester’s study yielded four key findings:
- Cloud brokers are still evolving. The business model, and therefore the set of technology, continues to change based on new technological possibilities and the increasing maturity of cloud consumption by customers.
- Telcos and System Integrators and new Cloud Providers will have an active role in cloud brokerage
- Telcos with access to a large number of customers in the SMB space will get most out of SaaS brokers
- Systems integrators and dedicated cloud infrastructure providers will get most out of Infrastructure brokers
With the advent of cloud broker business models, enterprises and small businesses will be able to consume cloud services with an unmatched flexibility and economic advantage. To find out more and obtain a free copy of this valuable, insightful report, please click the link above.
