How does a major telecom company become a leader in Cloud and Managed Services? It's the ability to adapt and change! In some companies it is common to find a corporate culture that is not only resistant to change, but discourages it -- not so with CenturyLink.

We're evolving strategically through key technology acquisitions, our cloud market presence, scalable on-demand solutions, and our MarketPlace Partner Program. Each acquisition brought on board technology that enables us to create new products, build next-gen services, and leverage partner offerings.
