Strengths: NTT has a strong customer base in Asia to sell cloud services to. And the family of companies it belongs to brings built-in market opportunities and a large partner network.
"NTT Com also has a long track record in managed hosting and managed security services, and can deliver these solutions in conjunction with Enterprise Cloud."
Cautions: NTT Enterprise Cloud does little to differentiate itself from other offerings. It has features that might entice developers, but is missing some that would make it more attractive.
NTT Com is preparing to unify its IaaS platforms by rolling out a next-generation cloud powered by OpenStack.
"While this represents a positive direction for NTT Com, it is a change that existing customers will have to navigate."
