But which dependency are we talking about? For what types of cloud services? What vendor practices are aggravating dependency – and even leading to lock-in? And finally, what can organisations still do to limit their dependency on their cloud providers?
At this X-change, we took on these questions. Kris Maes of Galapagos set the scene, focussing on what organisations can do before committing to a specific cloud-based provider, and referring to Beltug’s work on fair commercial practices. Then, Jan Joos from Stibbe discussed the possibilities from a legal point of view, both contractual and regulatory. Finally, Pieter De Meulenaer, 4ATOM, walked us through some of the drivers of the cloud model, and shared real-life examples of the options for organisations.
