Guide to cloud procurement
This document is not simply a ‘how to’ guide. Rather, its purpose is to act as a checklist for all those involved in procurement of cloud services including problem-owners (customers), operational staff, contract advisors and solutions providers (suppliers) to establish the extent to which their procurement practices are fit for cloud procurement. Much of the content of this checklist will be familiar to many of its readers. That is to be seen as a good thing. The next step is to consider why and how to address the concepts that are not familiar.
