This IDC Market Perspective explores the service provider market in Western Europe from an infrastructure standpoint. "Service providers are becoming increasingly important consumers of infrastructure in Western Europe, to the extent that we are at a crucial inflection point where more infrastructure will be sold to service providers than to enterprises. This has significant implications for the way vendors operate their go-to-market strategies because the type of company to which they sell is evolving. In this document, we provide data demonstrating this inflection point and analyze the channel implications of this," says Kamil Gregor, senior research analyst, IDC European Infrastructure.
