Wednesday, November 27, 2013 Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/htqfpj/practical_guide) has announced the addition of the "Practical Guide for Cloud Outsourcing a HandiGuide®" report to their offering.






ISO 27001 - 27002 - 27031 Compliant

"Cloud Template provides EVERYTHING that is needed to select an outsource, enter into an agreement, and manage the relationship," says a CIO of a Fortune 100 company.

The need to lower cost, increase efficiency and conserve cash has increased the motivation of companies to turn to Cloud Computing and increased the appeal of alternative delivery models. The disruptive shifts in new demand and supply patterns drives changes for how IT services are bought and from whom. Cloud computing requirements need to be well defined.

As interest in cloud computing continues to gain momentum, there is increasing confusion about what cloud computing represents. Without a common, defined vocabulary and a standardized frame of reference, organizations cannot have a cogent discussion about cloud computing. The practical guide for cloud computing outsourcing addresses this challenge by providing a context for productive discussion and a structure for planning, both short- and long-term, for a successful implementation.

With the growth of cloud computing and software-as-a-service initiatives--there is a disturbing trend of some enterprises trusting performance monitoring to the vendors.

Nearly six of 10 IT shops outsource some critical function--management, engineering, or development; almost one-fourth keep executive and management functions in-house but look to outsource everything else. As companies rely more on outsiders, a lack of oversight, management, and even monitoring can have catastrophic consequences.

The Practical Guided for Cloud Outsourcing Template includes -- Sample Cloud Outsourcing Contract along with a Service Level Agreement and other tools to facilitate the cloud outsourcing process. The template includes exclusive Business and IT Impact Questionnaire.

The template is delivered electronically in WORD and/or PDF format. Included are two 3 page job descriptions - Cloud Application Manager and Cloud Computing Architect. Sarbanes-Oxley issues are addressed directly, along with an ISO 27001 and ISO 27002 audit program.

The Cloud Guide and the Businesses and IT Impact Questionnaire are over 120 packed pages and include everything needed to plan for, negotiate, and manage an outsourcing process within an enterprise. The electronic document includes:

- Cloud Outsourcing Management Standard Overview of outsourcing, Service Level Agreements and responsibilities

- Cloud Outsourcing Policy Standard Policy that can be used to determine when outsourcing is an option

- Cloud Outsourcing Approval Standard Process which can be used in approving an outsourcing agreement. Includes a process flow hart on steps to a successful outsourcing agreement

- Sample Service Level Agreement Includes several sample service level agreements

- Service Level Agreement Metrics Definition of over 150 metrics presented in 18 tables that can be used to manage an outsourcing vendor

- Base Case Development Detail listing of factors to include

- Mutual Non-Disclosure Template that can be used to create an enterprise's own document for use with outsourcing vendors.
