– Birth of multiple cloud service providers worldwide differentiated on geo or industry/vertical focus.
– Higher prices charged.
– IT channel/reseller becomes uber specialised to do onsite cloud plumbing for certain industries/verticals that will never ever buy off prem cloud services.
– Consolidation of cloud service industries into smaller group of global players. Differentiate on price/brand.
– Lower prices charged.
My advice. Invest in DC’s in low cost/tech savvy countries, e.g. India, Vietnam.
