The myriad of options for cloud services are complicated and constantly evolving. Private Cloud, Public Cloud, Hybrid Cloud, Infrastructure as a Service (IAAS), Software as a Service (SAAS), Platform as a Service (PAAS), Cloud Storage, and Cloud Backup all offer different capabilities to align with differing business needs.
When implementing a defined cloud strategy, selecting a provider is a complex undertaking. Due diligence, RFPs, negotiations, and migration to a cloud service partner provide both tremendous opportunity and risk.
Harvard Partners' Cloud Procurement services can help minimize business risk inherent in this process by leveraging our industry experience in partnership selection, program management, and technology migration.
