Enterprises must quickly access innovative new technologies and services that are owned and operated by a wide range of service providers, including the infrastructure hardware and software deployed in edge and central locations, to enable new services.
Goals and Objectives
IT and line-of-business decision makers want to exploit “as a service” models for all types of IT and device assets as well as data/infrastructure software. They want to leverage public cloud–
like models where service providers own and operate assets in on-premises facilities to provide the flexibility and cost transparency metrics that enable closer alignment of investments with business outcomes — without increasing cost or compliance risks.
Local cloud as a service, device as a service, virtual network CPE, network as a service, cloud-based network, infrastructure and data control planes
Use Case Summary
Effective consumption of as-a-service infrastructure offerings from providers that reside within internal datacenters and edge locations enabled by effective procurement and service monitoring processes and network, physical, and data security governance practices
