The Cloud Show – Carriers & Cloud Special
Telecom carriers and their role in cloud.
For last 20 years, it is fair to say that continuous technical transformation and information waves have driven a high level of growth in the telecom industry.
However, where find ourselves in a situation where the telecoms industry is facing a series of challenges.
Connectivity is capturing a smaller proportion of the information value chain while content, service, and products capture more. I don’t think it is that much of a bold prediction to see that that one or more major telecom companies could be acquired by a content company within the next 3 – 4 years.
Further, trends such as IoT and mobile are adding billions of new connected data sources globally every year – with that comes an astronomical growth in data volumes.
Telecoms companies are also in the heart of the security challenge.
As custodians of the networks, carriers play a pivotal role in fighting the new threats that are emerging.
Customers expect and demand more proactive protection from the entire internet value chain, and carriers are expected to support these demands with a range of technical and operational innovations or they will fail.
So what can they do?
