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.

Inside The Internet Of India
A dual sim smartphone with 8 GB storage space is all you need to change the socio-economic status of an entire nation. This is the gateway to the brave new world where people, and not their middle-men, have power over their income and quality of life. Although these are stories of inspiration today, so-called 'folk tales' of the 22nd century, how do we evolve together before the phone hangs, the signal zone depletes indoors, and mobile data plans become more volatile?

In this competitive age, how would you like it if you were able to buy your Domains at Cost Price!
Domain margins in wholesale are slowly but certainly going to zero. Because registrars do not add value to domain names it is a simple economic law. Every industry where no value is added to a product sees margins going down to zero until another business model is invented and changes the game. Amazon did it with books and later again with electronic books. Costco did it in the supermarket business. Netflix does it in the TV and DVD world. Spotify and Pandora do it in the music world just like Apple did it before with I-Tunes. The domain registrar business is simply the next business that will change and we are the first to do it.
