DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/jdtrtr/how_centurylink) has announced the addition of the "How CenturyLink is Setting the Standard for the Next Generation of Cloud Services " report to their offering.
In this SPIE, this report looks at the shift in the cloud winds, and how most cloud services today are at risk of falling short of rising expectations. We examine the CenturyLink cloud strategy, particularly the underlying technology - the CenturyLink platform - in an effort to understand how CenturyLink is positioning itself for the next generation of cloud users.
Nonetheless, the research reveals an increasing percentage of IT leaders are turning to the cloud as part of a broader effort to support strategic business goals. The new IT approach focuses on business outcomes (for example, agility and market responsiveness), with enterprises matching workloads with the most appropriate deployment option and delivery model. To support this new, hybrid IT environment, the cloud service of the future needs to deliver a high degree of functionality, flexibility, interoperability, visibility, and control.
Are providers of cloud infrastructure services prepared for the shift? Cloud service providers of all sizes continue to enhance their basic infrastructure services with greater functionality and value- added services - and yet, it is not clear that their efforts are successfully addressing the needs of enterprises that are still trying to determine how to best leverage the new model.

- A New Cloud Dynamic
