With cloud computing taking center stage in today's gamut of IT implementations at the enterprise level, the IT services companies will need to view Cloud computing and related market segment as almost new segment of market which is being created today and look at servicing this sector as well.


Their ability and agility to gain share in Cloud Services for the enterprise segment would surely be critical in India and will decide rate of growth of IT Service providers looking at the cloud vertical today. Cloud based Services can provide avenues to tap into market opportunities offered by entirely new unaddressed segments of the market.


In the Cloud computing arena, the role of providing a traditional System Integration is fairly limited. To play an effective role and gain market share, systems integrators would need to position themselves as Cloud Eco System Integrator contributing significantly to different layers of cloud computing eco-system and hence proving their worth in front of the vendor as well as the enterprise community as a whole.


On the other hand, in order to be an effective Cloud computing Eco System Integrator, an IT Services provider or a SI would need to make sustained investments on the research and development front in order to develop, sustain and evolve Intellectual Property to meet ever changing demands of the enterprise computing market in India.

These services could be ISVs Cloud enabled business solutions or a Technology Company's Infrastructure Services for Private / Public cloud or even a business solutions company offering multi-tenanted applications like CRM, Service Management, Order to Cash solutions etc. Service originator's IP drives the value for the entire echo system.


Moving forward, this change of guard in the services sector will be more than visible and it will give an ideal platform for the solution provider community to move up the value chain and create better opportunities.
