This preview from the Acceleration Economy Cloud Wars Top 10 Course features C-suite practitioner analysts replicating the dynamic of executives discussing, debating, and defining the vendor selection process in the context of our top 10 ranking of the largest and most customer-focused cloud providers.
This episode is sponsored by Acceleration Economy’s “Cloud Wars Top 10 Course,” which explains how Bob Evans builds and updates the Cloud Wars Top 10 ranking, as well as how C-suite executives use the list to inform strategic cloud purchase decisions. The course is available today.
This video highlights the practitioner analysts discussing how they use the rankings, which were recently revised, in their vendor evaluations.

00:56 — This includes how they’re adapting or moving in new and sometimes dramatically different directions that customers are going in.
01:13 — There were a number of changes in the ranking and those reflect the point that these customers aren’t looking for the same things from the cloud today that they were one or two years ago. They’re also going to be looking for different things a year or two from now. Nimbleness, and a slavish devotion to what customers need today, is vital.
