ISG market study singles out QSC AG as three-time “leader” for SMEs in the Private & Hybrid Cloud category

Cologne, 10 July 2019 – In its latest market survey, the consultancy ISG has identified QSC as a leader in no fewer than three areas in the Private & Hybrid Cloud category. For Managed Services, Managed Hosting and Colocation services, ISG sees the cloud specialist as one of the providers offering the most attractive range of services and greatest competitiveness. The authors of the study stress the importance of QSC’s services for German SME companies in particular, a factor confirmed by the strong growth QSC has reported in its Cloud segment.

Leader with distinct SME expertise

“QSC is a leader that offers great SME conformity and expertise, as well as providing absolute reliability and freedom of choice”, comments Heiko Henkes, Director Advisor at ISG. QSC’s portfolio included private, public and hybrid cloud scenarios. The ISG analysts saw QSC’s comprehensive approach as a crucial factor in meeting the needs of SME companies: “The end-to-end advice QSC provides accompanies customers through all stages of the process from analysing the status quo, deciding which areas should be moved to the cloud and which cloud scenarios offer the greatest added value through to performing operations.”

Growing demand for managed service providers for hybrid clouds

According to the authors of the study, the managed hosting market is currently undergoing fundamental change. In transforming their IT landscapes, customers are increasingly on the lookout for advisory expertise and are more open to hybrid cloud scenarios that also include public cloud services. The experts at ISG see specialised managed service providers such as QSC, whose services cover all infrastructure types from public to private to multi-cloud as preferred partners for these kinds of hybrid scenarios.

Leader in all cloud segments

“These awards provide impressive confirmation of our all-round Cloud strategy focusing on SME players – and latch seamlessly onto our recent classification by ISG as a ‘leader’ and ‘rising star’ in the segment for public cloud services”, comments Jürgen Hermann, CEO of QSC AG. ISG has singled out QSC’s cloud services for the eighth consecutive year now and classified the Company as a leader for cloud-based infrastructure services for the seventh time.
