The Ecosystem of Connectedness: Cloud Economics and Complexity Necessitate Collaboration


Paul Hughes

This IDC Market Perspective looks at the how most enterprises see a fragmented technology supplier landscape to support their road map to connectedness and how a united and collaborative "connectedness ecosystem" of network, cloud, SI, and digital infrastructure landscape will solve that problem and drive faster, more profitable outcomes. Demand for wireless-led and cloud-driven connectivity have accelerated the digital transformation of the enterprise, forcing a transformation across the entire connectivity ecosystem.

"The future of enterprise connectivity is no longer driven by the telco, as IDC data shows that just 21% of enterprises see the telco as their primary source of staying connected," noted Paul Hughes, research director for IDC's Future of Connectedness Agenda Program. "Enterprise connectedness requires building flexibility and openness into cloud-centric strategy that enables application access, ease of operation, and integration across networks, IT, clouds, and critical applications. No single supplier can truly deliver on the promise of keeping data in motion, thus highlighting the importance of collaborative road map across the connectedness ecosystem to ensure 5G, MEC, SDN, and cloud transformations produce demonstrable benefits."
