Western Europe Telco Cloud Forecast, 2015-2020
Telcos currently account for about 15% of the overall cloud market in Europe. Their largest segment by revenue is SaaS, based on reselling popular services such as Office 365, operating cloud app stores, and selling their own unified communications-as-a-service (UCaaS) offerings. The highest growth rates (starting from a small base) will come from PaaS, however, which has significant potential for telcos over the long term as adjacent areas such as the Internet of Things (IoT) and Big Data become increasingly significant."Telcos have clearly faced some challenges on the path toward cloud, and they continue to struggle against the hyperscale providers on their home turf," said James Eibisch, research director, IDC's EMEA Telco 2020 Research. "But as they develop approaches centered on multicloud connectivity and partner ecosystems, their position in the cloud market looks a little more convincing and secure."
