Alliances in the technology industry are not a new phenomenon, but IDC sees a sharp increase in the number of alliances that are forming, specifically around cloud technology.
This IDC Presentation analyzes events in the cloud space from an alliance perspective — setting the context and background, exploring what is happening and why — and providing specific examples of key cloud alliances. These include Salesforce and IBM, Red Hat and AWS, and Microsoft and HPE. And as the cloud alliance concept matures, global standards have emerged to help companies start executing their cloud alliance strategies, and analysis of this aspect is also included in this report.
