Telco Cloud Connectivity Services in Europe
This IDC Market Perspective looks at the growth of cloud connectivity services in Europe. Public cloud is a critical foundation for enterprise digital transformation and so secure, performant access to hyperscalers is becoming increasingly important for enterprises as well as telcos in building their cloud provider partnerships.
"While most companies will continue to access cloud resources over the Internet, the market for cloud connectivity services is growing faster than the cloud market as a whole," said Jan Hein Bakkers, senior research manager, IDC. "Telcos need cloud connectivity as an integral part of their network services portfolios."
