This week, we offer some news and blogs of interest for service providers and telcos. Hybrid cloud has really taken off, multi-cloud is complex to manage, cloud management deals validate adoption – oh and AWS had a birthday and was dumped in the same week.

AWS and Azure are leaders in cloud, more companies are moving to the public cloud, telcos want more of an opportunity and multi-cloud is a reality.

It’s hard to believe January is almost over. 1/12th of the way through the year, it is time for telcos and cloud service providers to take a hard look at the reality of their cloud offering. If it doesn’t involve value added services, multi-cloud availability or technical expertise beyond IaaS and tin, expect a bumpy revenue line and shrinking customer base in 2016.
To help address these challenges, this month read our predictions for 2016 explaining why raw infrastructure will become even more of a commodity and the reasons behind the growing gap between successful cloud providers and those at risk of becoming ‘also rans’. Learn why organizations want simple and clear cloud relationships as well as more on why 2016 presents the chance to start a new year with a new cloud.
