Cloud Native in Telecom: Candid opinion and best practices from leaders across telecom and hyper-scale web. April 2018
Telecom may be virtualizing, but we are far from cloud -native and from achieving its operational promise. An extensive primary-research effort looking at best practices and candid industry opinion from across leading CSPs, NEPs, disrupters and web-scale players. We begin with first principles, look at current practice, industry objectives, gaps and recommendations for success.
We are very pleased with the outcome of our collaboration with Appledore Research and the level of research conducted by Patrick Kelly and his team. Not only is Patrick’s research relevant and aligned with key network transformations, it is presented in a straightforward manner that defies its complexity and manages to address impacts from numerous perspectives. Appledore Research brings to the forefront a privileged client outlook—combined with Patrick’s rigorous and in-depth knowledge of operators’ challenges and needs. Also, their consulting practice is among the best-in-class."
