Market Analysis Perspective: Elevating the Role of Telcos in a Multicloud Ecosystem, 2020
Multicloud and hybrid cloud are the way to go for enterprises today. However, today's public cloud is not carrier-grade. This IDC Market Analyst Perspective highlights why and how telcos should compete and cooperate with public cloud hyperscalers and cloud application providers by providing the required key performance indicators (KPIs) via cloud. The provision of a multicloud ecosystem with end-to-end orchestration, seamless life-cycle services, secured networks, and automated billing systems is the need of the hour. In the long term, this positions telcos to lay the foundation to become ubiquitous cloud network providers and provide an exchange of cloud interconnect services. Some of the questions answered in this report are:
- Why is Google Cloud preferred by telcos?
- Do telcos lean on their own cloud infrastructure or do they depend on interconnect platforms? Which is more beneficial?
- How does the telco cloud road map look like?
