  • These are by no means the only business models to pursue, but they are the 3 most appropriate for solution providers, and they are broad enough to allow solution providers to participate in many aspects of the cloud business. Successful solution providers are choosing one of these as there main area of focus, and building their primary business model around it. Cloud Designer & Builder – Solution Providers who provide products and services to assist end-users in determining the need for, and migrating to, cloud based solutions, either public or private. These solution providers will deliver a variety of offerings including services to migrate users to the cloud, the resell and design of private cloud infrastructure, and the integration of on-premises solutions with public cloud (often called Hybrid Cloud). Cloud Services Reseller – Sometimes also referred to as a Cloud Broker or Cloud Agent, these are solution providers who resell and add value to existing cloud services from cloud service operators. This also includes solution providers or MSP’s who white label and re-brand services as their own. In this model, the solution provider generates sales in a recurring revenue model, handling monthly billing to the end-user either on behalf of a service provider, or for themselves in the case of white label. Solution providers will add value to the cloud solution in the form of integration, vertical industry consulting, customization of SaaS based solutions, or consulting around customer needs and requirements to determine the best fit cloud option. Cloud Service Providers – Solution providers who have built out their own infrastructure, which they own and operate to provide cloud services to end-users. This business model is more akin to that of an IT organization than a traditional reseller. The differentiating factor is that cloud service providers do not have the captive audience that many IT departments rely on so they will have a fully developed sales function and a sophisticated means to provide metering, monitoring, and some level of self-service provisioning for the cloud services.
