Telcom service providers are determined to be cloud service providers, based on the unique selling point of network ownership and non-stop data centres. But understanding the business and service management needs of large enterprises in different sectors can be a challenge – often best met by leveraging an ecosystem with the right combination of sector expertise. A value chain is emerging with two distinct areas in which telcos can play: providers of cloud infrastructure platforms and networks to IT departments and businesses; aggregators of services, and providers of SaaS offerings to enterprise business departments. This session will explore both options and discuss how enterprises, themselves, are influencing the debate.
