The management of unstructured data (e.g. Big Data), the leveraging of analytics tools to derive value, and the integration between Cloud, Internet of Things (IoT), and enterprise operational technology are key focus areas for large companies across virtually every industry vertical. A new data economy is developing in which the data associated with corporate products and services becomes almost as value as the company offerings themselves. New models are emerging to reduce friction across the value chain including enhanced Big Data as a Service (BDaaS) offerings. BDaaS is anticipated to make cross-industry, cross-company, and even cross-competitor data exchange a reality that adds value across the ecosystem with minimized security and privacy concerns.
Cloud Computing technology and the “as a service” business model is transforming Services, Platforms, and Infrastructure for the entire ICT ecosystem. With the Everything as a Service (XaaS) model, leading apps such as Business Process, Communications, and Commerce/Payments may all be offered in a manner in which risk and CapEx are minimized while OpEx is logically scaled to business outcomes. Distributed Cloud Computing is becoming increasingly important in both fixed and wireless networks. Mobile Edge Computing (MEC) in particular is anticipated to become a critically important aspect of Communication Service Provider operations.
