Description

"Telcos that intend to become true digital service providers must make adoption of cloud-native technologies a strategic priority."

Web-scale companies pioneered cloud-native computing as the fastest and most efficient way of developing and deploying software in the cloud. Communications service providers (CSPs) must also adopt cloud-native computing across their businesses if they aim to become digital service providers (DSPs).

This report provides:

  • an explanation of why cloud-native computing is important to CSPs and vendors
  • a definition of cloud-native computing and descriptions of it simportant players
  • a discussion of whether all CSPs must engage with cloud-native computing immediately
  • details of ways that CSPs can accelerate cloud-native adoption
  • details of the key drivers for cloud-native computing
  • discussion of the business risks for both CSPs and vendors
