IDC PeerScape: Telecommunication Service Provider Practices to Maximize Cloud Service Provider Partnerships to Enable the Future of Connectivity
This IDC PeerScape provides examples of how different communication SPs are partnering with cloud service providers to enable their transformation to digital service providers. For each of the three main areas of transformation, we provide two examples of how communication service providers are working with cloud service providers and some of the results from those partnerships.
"The narrative on the relationship between telecommunication and cloud service providers has changed," says Daryl Schoolar, program vice president, IDC's Worldwide Telecommunications Insights. "Telecommunication service providers are moving away from seeing cloud service providers as a competitive threat. Telecom SPs are now starting to recognize cloud service providers as a key ally on their journey to being digital service providers."
