How to face the challenges of becoming a cloud operator

In a shifting market, the traditional revenues of telcos and service providers are under threat. Voice revenues are at an all-time low, and high wireless data costs are negatively impacting margins. As an additional challenge, many enterprises are moving low-value workloads and applications to public clouds such as Amazon, eroding traditional managed hosting revenues.

To overcome these challenges and remain profitable, telcos and service providers are building cloud computing into their service delivery strategies. This is enabling them to launch new cloud-based IT services that drive additional broadband traffic over their networks, helping them increase core revenues and access new commercial opportunities.

In this eBook, you will read about the challenges facing telcos and service providers as they become cloud operators. It gives an overview of market development, technical and organisational issues to keep in mind, and emphasises the importance of choosing the right cloud infrastructure to support business plans.
