The Age of Consumption


Cloud has moved beyond being simply a technology and has transformed into a way of doing business. Enterprises can increasingly consume IT without the constraints of having to build and maintain its underlying infrastructure. Opportunities for service providers are seemingly boundless in this new age of consumption, but the rising tide will not lift all boats.

It is now critical that service providers understand the role that economics will play in actualizing their full potential. Pricing is a science often treated as an art, and successful providers will use it as a competitive weapon. Partner strategies will also be instrumental for success, since no single provider can do everything, and while much has been done to simplify infrastructure for the enterprise, service providers will need even more sophisticated tools in order to profitably manage their own infrastructure for increasing demand and increasing performance. As IoT and AI drive pervasive intelligence, new deployment models (from the edge to the core) will need to optimize where workloads are executed.

The business opportunities are plentiful – but only for those who are smart, quick and strategic enough to pursue them. As Louis Pasteur famously noted, "Fortune favors the prepared mind."

Featured Sessions


Building Partnerships with Hyperscalers

Hyperscalers continue to dominate the cloud market. Their scope and scale have enabled them to build rich service portfolios that are difficult to compete against. Rather than compete, there is an opportunity for service providers to partner. This panel discussion will dive into the minds of leading providers (AWS, Microsoft and Alibaba Cloud) to enable service providers to better understand how to establish and nourish these complementary relationships. 

The IoT Opportunity

The Internet of Things has shifted from a roadmap project to the key component of current digital transformation efforts. The real-time nature of many IoT applications presents numerous opportunities, and potential threats, to service providers. This session and panel will focus on service provider impacts of application requirements, key vertical markets, use cases, as well as organizational pitfalls to avoid.

Beyond Cloud

The Digital Revolution is being powered by cloud but businesses and their service provider partners need a strategy to achieve digital transformation. The managed services approach for the next phase must include professional services, multi-cloud/hybrid implementation and management, and partner ecosystems to deliver bundled, lifecycle-oriented digital transformation capabilities. “Beyond infrastructure” services will continue to be a vital maintenance capability that businesses look to service providers to offer – akin to changing the lightbulbs in the building. Going forward, however, there is also an opportunity to provide transformation-oriented professional services and multi-cloud/hybrid implementation to help businesses rewire the building support new requirements.

Winning at Every Stage of the Cloud Journey

Cloud is a journey, and different enterprises are at different stages in their quests for value-driving, utility based computing. Cloud buyers need different services at every stage.  To stay relevant for the full journey, successful service providers will need to guide their customers thought this journey and anticipate their needs.  Winning a customer at one part of the journey does not mean that you will keep them for the next stage.

Critical Infrastructure from Edge to Core: How Will It Change in the Next Decade?

Different services and applications call for different infrastructure. Some need low latency, some need a lot of storage, some are highly sensitive. Few can tolerate failure. How is the underlying physical infrastructure evolving to support all these different options?
