Cost saving opportunities in the global hosting services market

The adoption of various cost-optimization levers helps buyers of hosting services realize direct cost savings and enhance category management and value benefits (including reduced procurement complexities).

Technavio procurement experts have segmented the cost saving opportunities in the global hosting services market into the following value-enhancement opportunities:

  • Adoption of technology
  • Supplier Competition
  • Adoption of negotiation strategies
  • Optimization of procurement practices
  • Bundling of services

Adoption of technology

Technologies such as Apache CloudStack, secure servers, 40-100 GbE fiber channels, and modular data centers can save up to 25% of the total category spend for hosting service suppliers.

The high-speed fiber channels offer better bandwidth to satisfy the steadily increasing bandwidth requirements. This also decreases network latencies, to enable a seamless flow of data.

Competition among suppliers

Suppliers compete based on discounts and negotiations on value-added services. Buyers prefer to engage with suppliers who can provide dedicated support services to maintain uptimes close to a 100%.

Data recovery capabilities is another key value addition that buyers look for from suppliers. Suppliers equipped to handle with data loss due to server malfunction or manual errors are clearly preferred.

Bundling of services

Services such as web-building, content management, web designing, and server maintenance are bundled together by suppliers to save up to 8% of the total category spend. This provides enhanced security and protection to the data stored in the system.
