Lifting the Fog: Creating Effective Contracts in the Cloud Environment

Thursday, April 13, 2017 12:00pm - 1:30pm EDT  
Host: NCMA

The growth in cloud services is exploding, but contracting has not kept pace. Federal agencies are moving to the cloud, and this demands a fresh look at IT services procurement. This presentation will steer participants through the cloud service and deployment models available, highlighting the benefits and downsides of each, and forcing them to rethink the way they contract for IT. Critical issues will be discussed—including security, vendor lock-in, and legal and regulatory obligations—and the potential procurement vehicles and processes to best meet your organization’s needs will be identified.
