Top 20 Public Cloud Services Providers: Gartner Magic Quadrant
Mark Haranas, Donna Goodison
Accenture, DXC Technology, Deloitte and Rackspace are just some of the systems integrators and MSPs who made Gartner’s new 2020 Magic Quadrant for public cloud infrastructure services.
Niche Player: Fujitsu
CSPs Supported: Alibaba Cloud, AWS, Google Cloud, Microsoft Azure, Oracle Cloud
Tokyo’s Fujitsu ranks among the bottom of the pack for execution and vision on the Magic Quadrant. The MSP has a broad selection of traditional IT offerings, and a stand-alone business for managed and professional public cloud services. Fujitsu targets enterprise customers with complex cloud adoption needs and significant hybrid requirements with its multi-cloud-focused messaging, and has racked up experience in projects where complexity, security and technical debt are challenges for heritage IT systems.
Strength: Fujitsu’s global network places its physical infrastructure capabilities close to customers in most regions, which could be important for hybrid use cases and situations when network latency and proximity are sensitive to hurdles with cloud adoption.
Weakness: The company lags some competitors in cloud-native capabilities because it hasn’t earned specializations such as the AWS DevOps competency. Its relatively few cloud-native accelerators could impact its credibility with more technical cloud services buyers.
