Sooner or later, you will be asked to comment on a contract for cloud services. It can be useful to know what to expect, including whether a customer is likely to succeed in requesting any changes to the provider’s standard terms. This webinar will provide an overview of industry practices based on an analysis of the contracts for 40 cloud services.

  • What’s in a typical cloud contract?
  • How do AWS, Google, and Microsoft deal with issues like choice of law and forum, liability, service levels, termination, and more?
  • Are standard cloud contracts evolving?
  • When can customers negotiate with cloud providers?
