Contracting Cloud Services

Back in 2011 cloud services were still considered to be relatively embryonic. Adoption had just broken through 50% and many businesses were starting to test (in a very small way) what this new commercial concept might mean for them.

The Cloud Industry Forum ran a research project endeavouring to clarify the contractual challenges that business users faced.  

Nearly nine years later we live in very different times. Cloud adoption has exceeded 90%, terms like cloud native, cloud first, born in the cloud, and multi-cloud are commonplace, showing how far we have come.

But is the contractual landscape any clearer than back in 2011? Are businesses better informed about what they are signing up to and are they able to influence the contractual terms? 

In partnership with academics and legal experts at both Queen Mary University London (QMUL) and leading London law firm Wallace LLP we would like to encourage your participation in this short survey. It should take you no longer than 15 minutes to complete and your individual answers will be in complete confidence
