Difficulties in managing workloads and data in multiple locations create opportunity for the right providers. Hosting and managed services providers are playing an active role in helping enterprises evaluate execution venues, migrate workloads, set up networks, operate infrastructure and secure data and applications. Datacenter providers are benefiting, with demand for space increasing from public cloud firms, service providers and enterprises. There will be opportunity in providing services and underlying infrastructure; the question is which services and where. Consolidation will continue as firms seek to gain scale and skills to address that opportunity.
