4. MSP Trends Cloud Managed services market will double what it was in 2016 in 20211 81% of service providers revenue are for services above the infrastructure level. • Professional services are no a larger part of the revenue profile for smaller providers as they replace their traditional resell and hosting revenue streams with new managed services, while larger organizations are more focused insecurity services2 45% customer implementing cloud prefer that their connection to public cloud is through a service provider3 1.

5. MSP Trends Cloud managed service market will remain relatively immature, and more than 75% of fully successful implementations will be delivered by highly skilled, forward-looking, boutique managed service providers with a cloud-native, DevOps-centric service delivery approach. By 2023, the number of cloud service provider (CSP)-certified companies delivering cloud managed services will shrink to fewer than 1,500 vendors globally, having peaked at about 3,000 in 2020. There will be significant market consolidation in the next five years. Expect that MSPs with less than $100 million in total revenue will be particularly attractive acquisition targets. MSPs rarely deliver true Multi-cloud solutions

6.Classification & Scenarios

7. Musts of MSPs The managed and professional services ecosystem for hyperscale providers is diverse but all need to: 1. Have deep technical expertise with hyperscale providers 2. Effective cloud management platforms (CMPs) 3. Managed services that leverage automation where possible 4. Local knowledge of the business environment and regularity environment.

9. Valued scenarios Design solutions that use the cloud provider in a best-practice fashion, regardless of whether the customer is migrating existing workloads or building new cloud-native applications. Help customers use the breadth of the hyperscale platform — including not only IaaS components, but also PaaS components and other higher-order services. Leverage the native management capabilities of the hyperscale cloud provider. Strong emphasis on the role of automation, including the use of DevOps tools and other automation tools that leverage "infrastructure as code." Best-practice approach to cloud infrastructure management, including the use of immutable infrastructure and DevSecOps where viable
