在新游戏中获胜

尽管云实际上已经成为IT领域的主流,但其潜力远不止技术创新。事实上,云为CSP以更有效、更具响应力和更创新的方式开展业务提供了潜力。基于云的业务作为收入的新来源,有助于转变电信行业中利润不断下降的态势。

全球各地的CSP都开始认识到云对于创造新的业务模式和提高竞争优势的巨大能力。随着越来越多的CSP加入到这一阵列,我们相信,表现最优秀的CSP将是那些充分发挥云的强大能力的CSP。无论是选择成为优化者、创新者还是颠覆者,成功的CSP都将把云作为推动业务价值和成功的关键差异化因素。

要想在这个新的游戏中获胜,CSP必须保证它们了解不断发展的生态系统、合作伙伴关系和业务模式。它们必须评估自己能否凭借强大的战略资产以最成功的方式运作业务,然后考虑如何运作。最后,它们需要确定能否最有效地与其他厂商合作,从而推出尽可能最优秀的云服务。在支持云技术方面,CSP可在创造价值的过程中扮演关键角色——现在是创造并抓住机遇的最佳时机!
