The Verizon State of the Market: Enterprise Cloud 2016 gives telcos and other cloud service providers some good news – cloud spend has grown. 84% of companies say their use of cloud has grown in the last year (up from 38% in last year’s report). Around half of companies say they will be using cloud for at least 75% of their workloads by 2018.
Last week Walmart announced that it will open-source the cloud technology it has built up following its acquisition of startup OneOps roughly two years ago. The reason? It hates vendor lock-in. A CIO article said:
“Vendor lock-in has plagued the corporate world since well before the arrival of the cloud, but now — with ever more of today’s technology operating in an online environment dominated by providers such as Amazon Web Services — it’s taken on new urgency.”
Providing innovative and differentiated services is critical to cloud service providers surviving and thriving in today’s competitive landscape. This month we continued our promise to innovate on behalf of the service provider by providing a number of new Flexiant Cloud Orchestrator features.
