The trends around global networked play, full-game downloads and in-game content purchases indicate a robust growth of the $180Bn Gaming industry, which is poised to grow its sales at a steady rate into the new decade. The transition to cloud gaming will see a switch in revenue models along with new content delivery methods.
With such a huge market to play for, console manufacturers, game publishers and new entrants with cloud and data centre assets are locked in a fierce battle. Each player faces its own set of challenges.
- Creating well-defined commercial models for Esports
- Moving from legacy environments to platform-agnostic games
- Defining monetization strategies around VR/AR technologies
As gaming and eSports companies surge to capture emerging markets and mobile gamers, the need for secure cloud connectivity
to global data centres, reliable core networking
to connect globally-distributed developer studios and a media distribution and remote production strategy
for their eSports properties are chief priorities for enterprise leaders.
Tata Communications, a leading digital infrastructure services provider to 300 of the Fortune 500 companies, is well-positioned to serve these key needs.
