Cloud Services

IT purchasers are increasingly looking to cloud computing as an alternative means of delivery to the 'traditional' on-site deployment model.

However, although harnessing "the cloud" can have significant commercial advantages, it has presented new risks particularly around reliability, security and data privacy, which need to be understood and managed whether acting as purchaser or supplier.

Shoosmiths' IT team has extensive experience of advising on all aspects of cloud based means of delivering software and/or infrastructure, whether in a SaaS, IaaS or PaaS context. We can provide market insight as to how purchaser's concerns can be addressed and we can help mitigate the key business risks associated with cloud services, including the structuring of private and hybrid cloud structures where confidentiality is a particularly sensitive issue.
