Quotes

Srinivasan CR, Vice President, Data Centre Services, Tata Communications says, "As technologies evolve and newer trends like BYOD and video streaming become a central part of enterprise business needs, it is important to have these applications hosted on a global data centre network to provide a uniform experience to the end-user. Additionally, hosting applications in interconnected data centre enables the user to access the data from anywhere, anytime and on any device. Expanding our data centre footprint forms part of our strategy to enable businesses with the most robust backbone for their organisations' digital infrastructure."
According to Gartner, "The number of organisations requiring global networking services continues to grow, due to globalisation and the growing adoption of cloud services, which are often hosted in different markets from the point of consumption. Organisations' appetite for more bandwidth shows no signs of diminishing, with video machine-to-machine communications and big data, coupled with IT centralisation, as the primary drivers. Reliability and performance control are growing in importance as business processes become ever more IT-dependent; in addition, IT architectures (such as thin-client computing) place ever greater reliance on the network."
...shown interest in using the city’s infrastructure, she said, adding that the city did not want to be a telecommunications provider to end users. "So we are not in competition with Telkom in terms of providing services. We want to grow the pool of service providers to end users."
"Otherwise we're just going to see players falling away, until the market ends up a virtual monopoly," she warns. "It's key that African regulators start to make provisions for consolidation because it is happening, and I suspect they're not prepared for it."
