In today’s fast paced economy, decisions need to be made faster than ever before. It’s easy to jump into an agreement without proper due diligence – with potentially dire consequences.
The ‘Black Art’ of Cloud Computing is not immune from this challenge. I recently saw an article published in Computer Weekly and written by Mark Weston, Principal at UK law firm Matthew Arnold & Baldwin LLP, which I thought was worth posting up as a useful guide. As with most areas of business, all that glitters is not gold and having read the article, I have to say I agree with Mark. It’s important to ensure you know what you are entering into before you sign any agreement. There are a simple set of questions you can ask that will help you avoid some of the potential pitfalls. You can read the article and the checklist Mark recommends by Clicking here.
