3 Reasons to Leave Your Cloud Provider


In a relationship with a Cloud provider – just as in a personal relationship – the relative importance of functions and services delivered by the provider can vary dramatically from customer to customer or even from user to user within the same customer. In a recently published Strategic Perspective, Saugatuck proposes that the most efficient and effective methodology for a customer to evaluate a relationship with a Cloud provider is to focus on whether (and, how well) the Cloud provider is fulfilling expectations in the following three areas:

  •     Initial Visions – This area of fulfillment focuses on benefits that the user perceived would be derived from using the Cloud-based offering.
        On-going Service Delivery – This area of fulfillment focuses on the on-going services delivered by the Cloud provider.
        On-going Improvements/Enhancements – This area of fulfillment focuses on on-going improvements or enhancements of functionality and/or services delivered by the Cloud provider.
