Cloud Service Brokerage – a $100 billion market
According to the Gartner report Key Findings, “Gartner estimates show that approximately $100 billion will be spent worldwide annually on combined cloud services brokerage (CSB) roles by year-end 2014 and small startup companies are driving much of today’s innovation in CSBs and CSB enablement through both technological advances and business consulting practices” – “Cool Vendors in Cloud Services Brokerage, 2013” report published on 18 April 2013 by Tiffani Bova, Daryl C. Plummer, et al.
“Nephos Constellation will enable enterprises and service providers to deploy services in the most appropriate locations (Private/Public/Hybrid Cloud Infrastructure) whilst giving a level of governance, automation and optimisation that isn’t currently available in the market. The main difference in our platform is that it was built on business processes from the ground up, so non-IT staff will be able to use it just as easily – which will mean a truly self service portal” said Michael Queenan, Co-Founder of Nephos Technologies.
Art Landro, CEO of Cordys stated “The combination of the Cordys Enterprise Cloud Platform, the expertise of Nephos Technologies and the ecosystem of cloud providers will simplify the management, delivery and consumption of cloud services which will generate huge value for customers. We’re already seeing a lot of uptake in this area across a wide range of service providers from telcos to systems integrators and into the enterprise market”
