Before You Say 'I Do' To A Cloud Vendor
Selecting a cloud vendor is a lot like getting married. Everyone's excited and hopeful that the relationship is long and full of love. But everything that glitters isn't always gold, and relationships with cloud vendors can go south. A prenuptial agreement (or at least an iron-clad contract) may be required to ensure everyone involved knows what they're getting in to. CRN caught up with Matt Cicciari, product marketing manager of OpenEdge/SaaS platforms and cloud deployment, and Mike Ormerod, an architect within the SaaS and cloud division, at Boston-based software and cloud player Progress Software to break down some of the components that should be included in a cloud prenup before a prospective cloud customer says "I do" to their cloud vendor.
