This IDC Market Perspective discusses buyer needs for managed multicloud services to deliver multicloud management capabilities. Expanding enterprise use of multiple types of clouds (private, public, hybrid) involving multiple types of service providers (IaaS, PaaS, SaaS), coupled with the need to ensure continuous innovation, transformation, and operational excellence, is driving the need for enterprises to utilize managed multicloud services that involve multicloud management capabilities. Supporting the provisioning of managed multicloud services will require breadth of capability and investments.
"Managed SPs are under pressure to meet enterprise need for multicloud management capabilities via provisioning of managed multicloud services that support the full life cycle of services and that can adjust to real-time changes, assure compliance with regulations and security, meet critical financial objectives, and support a diversified set of stakeholders," says David Tapper, program VP, Outsourcing and Managed Cloud Services at IDC. "Ensuring success in providing managed multicloud services for multicloud management will require that managed SPs center value proposition of managed multicloud services on business value, move to higher-level services, develop an intelligent platform for service delivery, make analytics core to provisioning services, invest continuously in innovation and new business models of service delivery, define evolution of automation, offer a broad set of capabilities, build extensive partnership ecosystem with ability to adapt ecosystem, and invest in the long term in building their own platforms for service delivery with cloud as core."
