Companies are flocking to cloud-based services and applications to run critical business functions. While there are many benefits to using cloud-based services, structuring a cloud computing transaction, while reducing risk, can be a daunting task, particularly if you don’t know the fundamentals of cloud computing deals.

Matt Karlyn, Partner at Foley & Lardner, Co-Chair of Foley’s Technology Industry Team, will lead a discussion focused on the essentials of cloud computing and getting cloud computing deals done efficiently.  He will impart valuable knowledge and insight into drafting and negotiating market-based cloud deals and share tips that can be used and implemented immediately. Matt is co-author of “A Guide to IT Contracting: Checklists, Tools and Techniques” and a national speaker and writer on cloud computing

All in-house counsel involved in drafting and negotiating cloud computing agreements will benefit by attending this presentation. The presentation will:

  • Review the issues and concerns that should be addressed in cloud agreements to effectively mitigate risk
  • Explore the fundamentals of cloud computing and offer best practices on how to negotiate critical terms, such as services definitions and service levels
  • Review the privacy and data security issues that arise with cloud computing and discuss how those issues can be addressed in cloud computing agreements.
