Ecosystem Orchestration Platform Vendor Reference Guide: Vendor Marketplaces Edition
This IDC Tech Buyer Presentation includes data from IDC's 2023 ecosystem orchestration platform (EOP) request for information (RFI) and other IDC market research. The goal of the research is to provide technology buyers with a reference guide of EOP solution capabilities in order to help them choose which vendors they should short list for a proof of concept. This reference guide is one of three focused on the primary use cases of EOP solutions — telecom/communications, technology service provider, and vendor marketplaces. This guide is focused on EOPs that enable scalable technology distribution for vendor marketplaces.
EOP address the complexity of managing, orchestrating, and monetizing multipartner recurring/transactional/service offerings across multiple channels. EOPs enable a business to create and support a marketplace of typically digital subscription services with adjacent offerings like marketplaces offered by many telecoms, AWS, Microsoft Azure, and Salesforce AppExchange.
