SYDNEY, Dec. 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --According to capioIT CEO Phil Hassey; "Enterprises buyers of infrastructure services in Australia are fortunate to have a significant choice in providers due to the highly competitive market. These providers offer a spectrum of capabilities from Cloud to traditional IT Outsourcing, including Managed Services. Leadership in the Australian Infrastructure Services market rests with Hewlett Packard (HP). Telstra, CSC and Dimension Data follow very closely behind." These firms are the only "Market Makers" in the study. All four Vendors are leaders in transitioning organisational infrastructure requirements from a traditional outsourcing model towards variable models of service delivery that best meets business requirements.
Key strengths of the highest ranked providers include
- HP - Investment in the Aurora data centre has enabled differentiation
- Telstra - Strong partnering reinforces capabilities and network centric approach
- CSC - CSC had the focus to invest early in cloud in Australia and has a range of offerings
- Dimension Data - Strength in the mid-market and a strong focus on client delivery
Mr. Hassey notes that success is clear, "whilst the transition of infrastructure services from a traditional outsourcing model to cloud is far from complete, the leaders in the Australian Infrastructure services market have worked to ensure choice of delivery model for clients."
The drivers for the adoption of Infrastructure as a Service as a delivery model for Infrastructure Services are evolving almost as quickly as the service provider marketplace. Whilst the traditional driver is cost efficiency, capioIT believe that through 2014, the cost management focus will be matched with deployment of agility based cloud solutions for both IT and business users. Vendors need to ensure that they can continue to offer cost management, but increasingly enable agility and business engagement if they are to maintain or grow their position in the Australian Infrastructure Services Capture Share Report.
