Cloud providers feel the pressure to become flexible
Monday, May 28, 2012
Pressures from markets are increasing on Cloud providers to offer greater flexibility in contract terms.
Research from Queen Mary, University of London demonstrated that most Cloud provides offered one-size-fits-all contracts which are often balanced in favour of the provider. The current scope of contract types at present is very limited and large Cloud users are beginning to push for greater variety.
Professor Christopher Millard, lead academic on the Cloud Legal Project commented: “These are the key contractual issues of concern to users in the cloud market at this relatively immature stage of cloud adoption.”
