Cloud: From Playground to Production
Cloud computing is an inevitable trend nowadays. We talk with analysts from 451 Group about the key trends in cloud computing, the current stage of cloud computing, and differentiations that can set vendors apart from the competition.


IT and CT are both converging and competing. This consolidation is gradually transforming the telco ecosystem. While confronting new Internet-based business models, customized requirements, and new services, carriers are also encountering bottlenecks in traditional service areas, especially long time-to-market for new services, low resource utilization, and high OPEX.

As a post-IP technology, cloud computing presents both opportunities and challenges to the telco industry and offers new directions for carriers looking to be more than just a dumb pipe. Spurred by the cloud, the entire industry is embracing ICT transformation, actively and openly.
