This research is a quantitative and qualitative assessment of the characteristics that explain a vendor's success in the marketplace and help anticipate the vendor's ascendancy. This evaluation is based on a comprehensive framework and set of parameters expected to be most conducive to success in providing cloud IaaS for both the short term as a platform for platform as a service (PaaS) and software as a service (SaaS) and the long term for the transformation of IT services.
