Report Summary:

The dramatic shift in the IT industry toward business cloud services is creating stronger relationships between buyers and their suppliers. Business-to-business (B2B) services delivered from clouds offer corporate buyers greater flexibility, scalability, visibility, manageability and efficiency for business users. For service providers, B2B cloud services create opportunities for developing new business as well as lowering the costs of current operations. Whether these benefits will be fully realized will depend on how well buyers and suppliers communicate about choosing among the many options for B2B cloud service types and deployment models. This report examines the benefits and opportunities for IT providers, service providers and their buyers for application and infrastructure workloads delivered from clouds, and the challenges in positioning these services that must be addressed to drive further adoption. Big data analytics are good examples of workloads that provide maximum benefits from moves to the cloud when buyers and suppliers work together on the best fitting combinations of cloud options.
