Cloud & Managed Services Transformation

Covering the technology and services, economics and business models, and cloud native approaches driving enterprise cloud transformation and the re-invention of the IT industry.


The Cloud & Managed Services Transformation Channel provides a point of intellectual convergence around the evolution of enterprise IT, encompassing cloud consumption and delivery models in the context of both IT and digital business transformation. We track vendors bringing innovative and disruptive approaches to the evolving enterprise IT landscape – covering the waterfront of technology, services, operating models, business models, and economics. The worlds of hosting, outsourcing, managed services, and systems integration are converging as the hyperscale cloud providers extend their influence and remit in the industry, bringing with them more agile (i.e., cloud native) approaches to IT operations. In the process, the market participants -- IT service providers, technology vendors, distribution/channel players, and telcos must reinvent themselves and redefine their value propositions. The Cloud & Managed Services Transformation Channel also examines how the IT industry is itself is changing in response to cloud, tracking ecosystem development, M&A activity, and shifting market dynamics.
