There’s plenty to think about… SECURITY DATA - Integrity - Recovery ACCESS -Electronic -- Physical Geopolitical Site & Infrastructure APPLICATIONS REGULATION and COMPLIANCE INTEROPERABILITY GOVERNANCE SERVICE MATURITY Control of costs Maintaining alignment with company’s technical strategy Non IT procurement exposing the company to some or all of these cloud issues – need for greater/tighter internal governance Lock-in to a particular cloud software technology Limitations on sharing or transferring data Ability to articulate appropriate SLAs and performance requirements Reporting arrangements May influence the EXIT strategy What interoperability standards does a supplier support? PROVIDERS Location of data PORTABILITY Access of data for legal purposes Audit rights COSTS Cost comparison Contract terms Implications on the Retained Organisation Third party integration costs? MOBILITY Locations of user/customer communities Fixed and variable location profile Cloud Computing – clearing the fog.
