Cloud Computing

What isn't "cloud" these days? Looking past today's hype to the point where cloud technologies have matured, cloud computing will fundamentally change the acquisition and use of computing and storage resources in ways that will have far-reaching effects on how IT organizations deliver technology within the enterprise. The dislocation of data and resources from inside the corporate firewall to the cloud can create benefits, but moving corporate data and applications to a "public" solution presents significant operational, security and privacy challenges.

Pillsbury Global Sourcing is at the forefront of helping clients take advantage of this new technology, both in cloud-specific transactions as well as a component within broader IT outsourcing initiatives. We have long been a go-to firm for data privacy and security, intellectual property and technology licensing, experience that helps companies address cloud computing issues like:

  • Ensuring compliance with privacy laws
  • Preservation, collection and production of information in the cloud
  • Security of information stored in the cloud
  • Risks associated with exporting and importing data across borders
  • Preservation of trade secrets and privileges

Information and privacy aren't the only challenges that we help our clients address. Early leaders in cloud services have a "take it or leave it" contracting approach and their service-level offerings look more like consumer services than an enterprise B2B offering. In addition, cloud pricing can be attractive at low volumes but can quickly become far less advantageous at higher volumes.

Pillsbury's extensive outsourcing and on-demand contracting experience enables us to help clients maximize the efficient and effective use of cloud offerings as another delivery alternative while maintaining the appropriate level of control and compliance.
