Today, telecom operators have helped businesses in taking their data and enterprise apps to the cloud, helping them access stored information or use applications from anywhere in the world. Organisations using the cloud benefit from economies of scale, and because their
responsibility stops at the edge of the cloud, they don’t need to worry about how any collaboration will be routed: this is the onus of the
telecom service provider.
Another advantage of the cloud is that it brings a quicker time to benefits. While most of the legacy IT infrastructure components have
been built on a Capital Expenditure (CapEx) model requiring significant investments upfront, the cloud model stands on an Operating Expenditure
(OpEx) model. With radical changes in an enterprise’s IT infrastructure, the cloud can help it bring new products to markets and reach new markets
faster. It also reduces the total cost of ownership and builds a better user experience.
