Case Study

Service Provider Reimagines Cloud Offerings Based On Cloud Advisory Board Feedback

Responding to the crowded and undifferentiated nature of the cloud services market, our client saw an opportunity to develop market-leading cloud offerings by collaborating closely with its global customers. It established a Cloud Advisory Board program in North America, Europe/Middle East and Asia-Pacific, bringing together 50 C-level cloud executives to lead this initiative.

The program kicked off with consultative meetings in all three regions, followed by a series of vertical subcommittees spanning the global membership. Members told our client that they had specific vertical industry needs which were not being met by hyperscalers and other service providers. They needed fully-compliant vertical solutions which were easy to consume, help in realizing their cloud cost management goals and assistance with negotiating and realizing value from hyperscalers.

The Client redesigned its portfolio of interconnected cloud offerings under a unified offering banner, which it launched with analysts and the press to great acclaim. Delighted with the new orientation, Cloud Advisory Board members increased their cloud spending intensity with our Client by over 15%.
