However, since a successful relationship with your cloud service provider involves mutual trust and joint learning, prudent organizations are taking a gradual, incremental transition to the cloud.

Your cloud service provider will be one of your most important business relationships. This white paper explores the best practices for choosing the vendor that is most conducive for you, including:

  • How to define your requirements for today and the future

  • Identifying and screening promising service providers

  • Predicting ROI: Assessing returns and hidden costs

  • And more!
