Join Cordys and featured guest Stefan Ried to learn how cloud brokering is shaping new business models

Online PR News – 08-November-2012 – Putten, the Netherlands and Pleasanton, CA – Cordys, a leading global provider of cloud platform software, will host a complimentary webinar – The Evolution of Services Providers – on Tuesday, November 13th at 11 a.m. EST with featured guest speaker Stefan Ried of Forrester Research, Inc. A member of Forrester’s Business Technology Futures team, serving CIOs and their business partners by predicting the long-term business impact of IT, Ried will share industry insights on the evolution of service providers, and discuss how cloud brokering is shaping new business models.

A cloud broker, an entity that creates and maintains relationships with multiple cloud service providers, acts as a liaison between cloud services customers and cloud service providers to select the best provider for each customer.

According to a recent survey from Forrester, cloud brokers are on the rise, but what exactly does it mean? How can this model benefit telecommunications companies, system integrators and cloud infrastructure providers?

This webinar will cover:

• Top trends moving the cloud market
• How to best serve customers of cloud and on-premise services
• Cloud brokers’ primary technology drivers
• Different approaches to cloud brokering
• How organizations can profit from growth of the cloud

Attendees will receive a complimentary copy of a Forrester thought leadership paper, “Cloud Brokers Will Reshape the Cloud,” a commissioned study conducted by Forrester Consulting on behalf of Cordys. The study, which includes 10 interviews with major cloud providers and telcos, discusses the migration of telcos, system integrators and other cloud providers to a cloud broker model. Those slow to to embrace this model are seeing a “pull” momentum from their customers and regional markets to offer cloud services.
