Five Ways Cloud Changes Will Impact You

  • Five Ways Cloud Changes Will Impact You-

    More consultative CSPs

    Organizations will look for a different kind of help, and a new breed of cloud service provider (CSP) will emerge. This new provider will be able to consult with users about the best way to build a cloud environment for their needs, and will be able to talk them through the steps of the IT transformation journey it takes to get there. And they will be able to help them build, manage and operate the cloud platforms they design together. Tomorrow's cloud service providers will be judged much more critically, and will compete in terms of specific purpose-built capabilities. Users will seek the cloud service providers who deliver the best IaaS for a particular application or as-a-service offering and will choose based on those very specific requirements.

Cloud computing is maturing and, as it struggles to take the next bold step forward, cloud providers will differentiate themselves through specialization, predicts Vince DeLuca, CEO for Logicalis US, an international IT solutions and managed services provider.

IT departments today are defined by how their users access and consume technology and how that access impacts the business' overall performance. Moving to "the cloud," for many, has meant a slow transition, often testing the cloud with generic providers.

Cloud providers will soon be forced to adopt a specialty focus, offering solutions tailored to individual applications, and vying to be known as the best for certain specialties: mobile sales applications or DRaaS, for example. The battle for dominion over these capabilities and innovations is heating up, and CIOs and their organizations will be the beneficiaries.
