In this report, you will:

  • Discover information about federated global marketplace and local catalogue
  • Understand how to provide automated cloud delivery to existing customers
This report covers how ActivePlatform:

  • Provides a solution for IT distributors to become a cloud servicers broker, as well as deliver own packaged IP and managed IT services to its customers.
  • Includes a built-in comprehensive billing management engine
  • Offers developers a vendor portal where vendors can configure and push out their products, and the core cloud brokerage platform, which is service provider and customer facing
The cloud market is bifurcated with a handful of mega scale global cloud vendors and global distributors, and hundreds of tier-2/3 regional and smaller-scale global cloud providers. The challenge for these smaller providers is to compete in terms of the number and variety of cloud services they can offer customers. ActivePlatform has identified a market opportunity to enable regional and smaller scale providers to operate like the mega scale providers. The cloud service brokerage concept will enable third-party service providers to reach to their audience more efficiently, and help tier-2/3 cloud providers to challenge the mega-scale cloud providers.
