In many cases, the end of the year gives you time to step back and take stock of the last 12 months.

Cloud Services Brokerage Enablement | @CloudExpo #DX #Cloud #FinTech
Enabling service providers to drive new revenue streams and increase market share

Cloud Services Brokerage Enablement

The cloud market is growing at a rate of 30% annually and is expected to reach $130 billion. Analysts  predict that service providers are well positioned to be the leading point of distribution for cloud  services in light of the scale of their operations and their capacity to offer end-to-end lifecycle  management for IaaS, SaaS and PaaS over secure managed networks.

Delivering cloud services has emerged as one of the most important opportunities of the decade for  service providers. To retain existing customers, grow market share and maintain existing profit margins  on core services; service providers need an edge on their competition and to increase agility in  addressing emerging market opportunities.  In what is often considered their “core” business, service providers are facing new competition from companies that are offering a range of value-added services to small, medium and  large enterprises. For most providers, it's no longer a question of  if but rather how they make that transition from a traditional  telecommunications provider to a 'technology services' company.

"According to Darryl  Plummer, Chief Analyst at  Gartner: “The future of cloud  computing will be  permeated with the notion  of brokers negotiating  relationships between  providers of cloud services  and the service customers.”

But with many different clouds serving many different needs, implementing a cloud services delivery infrastructure around a  few offerings today raises the risk of managing services  stovepipes tomorrow. And given not all services they may want to  sell can reside in their own data centers, service providers must  also contend with how they can deliver externally provided  services, along with their own, in a manner that provides a  seamless user and lifecycle management experience for their  customers.

Cloud Services Brokerage – Big Opportunity for Service Providers
The cloud is not a single entity, but rather many disconnected islands of application and infrastructure  services that each has their own unique authentication and authorization, provisioning, administration,  licensing, billing and support characteristics. This presents a significant challenge and barrier to adoption  for businesses who want to consume multiple cloud services from multiple cloud providers.

But this fragmented user experience presents an excellent opportunity for service providers to add value by becoming cloud aggregators, or what is increasingly referred to as a ‘Cloud Services Brokerage.  According to Darryl Plummer, Chief Analyst at Gartner:

“The future of cloud computing will be permeated with the notion of brokers negotiating  relationships between providers of cloud services and the service customers.”

Applying the Cloud Services Brokerage (CSB) model is a way for service providers to leverage their  networks and data centers to provide an interconnected cloud computing grid that combines best-of-  breed cloud services delivery with carrier-class quality of service and enterprise-grade security. This will  enable them to deliver IaaS, SaaS and PaaS clouds from third-party providers as well as from their own  data centers – providing a single point of purchasing, billing, support, access control and services  lifecycle management for their customers.

Jamcracker – the Cloud Services Brokerage Enabler

According to recent analysis from Gartner, the CSB market will be worth hundreds of billions of dollars  within a few short years:

“CSBs will represent the single-largest category of growth in cloud computing, the CSB vendor  landscape will have grown from dozens to hundreds of providers.”

In addition to driving new revenue streams, the Cloud Services Brokerage model provides a means for  service providers to reduce customer churn and increase competitive differentiation with their existing  core service offerings, such as broadband. Telstra, as one example, has seen very positive trends from its  experience with T-Suite, their own branded Cloud Services Brokerage marketplace (powered by  Jamcracker). According to Kate McKenzie, chief marketing officer at Telstra:

"T-Suite customers are 65 percent less likely to churn broadband services than broadband only  customers."

"22 percent of T-Suite customers without a Telstra broadband service take up a Telstra  broadband service within 12 months."

"Over half of T-Suite customers also bought multiple applications.”

The CSB model provides an architectural, business and IT operations model for enabling, delivering and  managing different cloud services within a federated and consistent provisioning, billing, security,  administration and support framework. For service providers, it will enable them to unify the delivery of  cloud services to drive new sources of revenue and differentiate their networks as a true cloud  computing platform. The stakes have never been higher.

Turning Theory into Practice – The Jamcracker Solution
Naturally, service providers are asking how to implement the  Cloud Services Brokerage (CSB) model in a manner that reduces  time-to-market, maximizes their revenue potential and  competitive differentiation, integrates externally and internally  hosted services into a unified offering for their customers, while  providing a future-proof means to expand and grow as the cloud  services market evolves.

Jamcracker provides a CSB solution that aggregates and delivers  cloud services through a global ecosystem of service providers  and cloud providers – called the Jamcracker Services Delivery  Network (JSDN). Jamcracker's cloud services aggregation and  delivery platform enables service providers to bundle and  distribute a broad array of third-party cloud services along with  their own core and partners’ offerings, providing a unified cloud  delivery and usage experience for their customers, whether  selling direct or through their channel partners.

Service providers can launch their own branded CSB quickly and  cost-effectively by leveraging Jamcracker’s platform as well as a  catalog of pre-integrated cloud services partners, most of which  include pre-negotiated wholesale discounts. These offerings  include messaging, collaboration, security, data continuity, mobile  and business productivity solutions from Mozy, Kaseya, Microsoft,  McAfee, WebEx, BlackBerry and dozens of other cloud providers.

"According to Kate  McKenzie, CMO of Telstra: “T-Suite customers are 65  percent less likely to churn  broadband services than  broadband only  customers."
"22 percent of T-Suite  customers without a Telstra  broadband service take up  a Telstra broadband  service within 12 months."
"Over half of T-Suite  customers also bought  multiple applications.”

Jamcracker Services Delivery Network
Jamcracker's Services Delivery Network (JSDN) enables many different types of cloud service offerings  and deployment options to be delivered with a single point of provisioning, access, security, billing,  administration and support. The JSDN is powered by a highly scalable and distributed architecture; with  technology, operations, support infrastructure, market knowledge and services delivery business  processes established over a decade of definition, development and refinement.

This cloud services enablement, delivery and management foundation incorporates technology,  operations and market experience that allows service providers to leverage the following benefits:

  • Unified Services Delivery: Jamcracker’s CSB platform enables unified provisioning, billing, single-  sign-on, user management, support and usage for third-party services available through Jamcracker's existing and new wholesale agreements, but also for service providers’ own core  services or partners’ offerings. This allows providers to create bundles to maximize up-sell and  cross-sell potential.
  • Wholesale Services Catalog: Jamcracker has established distribution agreements and developed  service adapters for a wide array of IT, security, communication, collaboration and business  application cloud providers. This enables service providers to rapidly get to market with a core  set of well-recognized cloud services offerings.
  • Platform for Innovation: Jamcracker’s solution provides service providers with tremendous  flexibility to experiment with new cloud service offerings, service bundles and to respond rapidly  to changing market opportunities.
