Cloud services

About

The ‘Cloud’ is increasingly being used by many technology companies as the platform through which to deliver their core services, whether these relate to the provision of data, software, infrastructure or other IT services. With cloud services predicted to be a $500 billion global industry by 2020, we foresee this business model being used by many more IT providers and their customers over the next few years.

We advise a number of leading suppliers of software and IT services whose services are based on cloud solutions, including those who operate, or intend to operate, software-as-a-service and infrastructure-as-a-service business models, and those providing ‘internet-of-things’ services.

We appreciate that the provision of cloud-based services often raises complex legal issues around data protection, data security and limitations of liability, as well as involving licensing mechanisms, hosting and support services which are different to those applicable to more traditional business models. We work closely with you to understand and help you to address these issues.

Whether we are acting for the services provider or for a customer, we ensure, through drafting and negotiation, that the terms applied to commercial agreements for the provision of cloud services are ‘fit for purpose’, suitable for the technology involved and tailored to meet your commercial objectives.
