They are aware that cloud mar­ket is small yet has a long, but a def­i­nite fu­ture for pure-play cloud ser­vices. With right in­vest­ments–part­ners, peo­ple and pro­cesses, tel­cos could scale the op­er­a­tions to take the lead­er­ship po­si­tion in this space. The in­dus­try con­sen­sus is that ev­ery thing which is new has a fair share of is­sues around se­cu­rity, per­for­mance and up­time. It is im­por­tant for cus­tomers to per­ceive the far-reach­ing ben­e­fits to busi­ness and weigh them against the per­ceived threats. And the adop­tion of cloud is more about fight­ing the in­ter­nal re­sis­tance to change.
