The best practices of cloud service level agreements
More and more organisations choose to replace traditional ICT services by cloud services.
Setting up effective SLAs for traditional ICT services ia a real challenge for many organisations. With the arrival of cloud services, this seems to be much simpler at first, but soon the hard questions come up like data ownership, information links and security. This book describes what cloud services are. The risks involved in entering into contracts and SLAs are discussed. Based on a long list of risks and countermeasures, this book also provides recommendations for the design and content of the various service level management documents for cloud services.
