Roundtable: The Intersection of IoT, Cloud and Big Data
Sunday, 17 January 2016
Network service providers (NSPs) have strong opportunities to augment existing service portfolios by offering turn-key cloud services that build on their established enterprise business relationships. With businesses of all types moving to hybrid-cloud architectures to lower their costs and increase business agility, partnering with established interconnection providers to drive cloud can offer NSPs great rewards.
Highlighting real-world use cases, this session will explore how NSPs of all types and sizes can identify, source and scale a variety of cloud service offerings, including software-as-a-service (SaaS), infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) and platform-as-a-service (PaaS) to their enterprise customers with minimal addition to their existing infrastructures and little-to-no incremental training or staffing overhead. Attendees will learn about carrier-agnostic cloud and enterprise interconnection providers and how to convert those providers’ existing cloud provider relationships and service delivery infrastructures to real, recurring revenues quickly, easily and reliably.
