Analyst Strategy Paper: Open Cloud Alliance – Openness as an Imperative

By on November 12, 2014 in Cloud Computing

Future enterprise customers will be accessing a mixture of proprietary on-premises IT, hosted cloud services of local providers and globally active cloud service providers. This is a major opportunity for the market and all participants involved. This is especially so for small hosters with existing infrastructures, as well as for system integrators with the appropriate know- how and existing customer relations.

In light of this, in this strategy paper Crisp Research investigates the challenges that both provider groups are facing in this situation, and deals with the most important aspects and their solutions.

The strategy paper can be downloaded under “Open Cloud Alliance – Openness as an Imperative“.
