This IDC Market Perspective examines how cloud service providers globally are responding to the rapid increase in demand for cloud services and are changing their business models and practices as a result. It further details the reasons why technology vendors should acknowledge the interest in multicloud and embrace multivendor existence.

"Service providers are pivoting to meet the new demands of their customers for cloud," says Rory Duncan, research vice president, Cloud Service Providers at IDC. "These demands require multicloud and multivendor offerings. Technology suppliers must ensure that their strategies for partnering with these providers satisfy these demands. Coopetive solution selling, multicloud existence, and integration are increasingly the norm. Cloud technology and platform vendors alike need to accept and embrace these concepts in order to thrive."
