New services for new opportunities – is cloud portfolio expansion the answer for service providers?

New services for new opportunities – is cloud portfolio expansion the answer for service providers?

As new kinds of cloud services emerge in response to increasing demand for security, storage, DR, application management and other on-demand functions, many service providers have been tempted to respond by expanding their portfolios. But developing and launching a new service is a risk – even for the largest providers – putting pressure on margins and growth. In addition, economic and legislative factors can have a significant impact on demand, limiting take-up and increasing costs. Against the backdrop of increasing security challenges and international competition, Meera Singh – Research Director with 451 Research – will outline cloud service demand and market trends, opportunities for growth and recommendations for leveraging your ecosystem.
