Assessing gaps in the current ICT procurement processes by reference to the DSM Cloud Strategy objectives towards safer contracts represents the first step towards fostering cloud adoption in both the public and private sector.
To this end, it is necessary to analyze the main legal deliverables of specific sample projects dealing with the entire cloud contract lifecycle, which includes planning, pre-contractual phase, acquisition, operation and termination. This operation is necessary to assess how major cloud-related barriers in various use environments may be overcome.

D5.2 Cloud adopters adoption assessment

This document responds to the contractual deliverable D5.2 of the SLALOM Support Action, an EC-funded project (grant 644720) with the mission to develop standard technical and legal models for cloud computing contracts and SLAs.
The purpose of this document is to summarize:

This document presents the findings resulting from the Provider Track (WP4) led by the Cloud Industry Forum (CIF) in the SLALOM project.

The purpose of this document is to provide a revised version of the legal model previously published by SLALOM in the light of the recommendations that have been suggested by some stakeholders through their feedback.

Moreover, this document is intended to reconsider some of the legal issues addressed in the previous model due to the ongoing changes in the European legal framework occurring in the past few months, especially in the context of the Digital Single Market initiatives.

Final version of SLALOM SLA Technical Specification and Reference model

The current document is the third and final one in the series of three deliverables of the SLALOM project that aim at proposing a specification for Cloud Service Level Agreements (SLAs). The proposed SLA specification refers to the core SLA document that incorporates metrics (as specific objectives or quality attributes), parameters, rules as well as potential dependencies between rules. Examples of metrics along with their JSON implementation are also included in the document.

SLALOM shares its findings to support Research & Scientific Community

Cloud SLA Metrics Based on the SLALOM Specification and Reference Model v1

SLALOM provides a report on Jurisprudence and case law related to #CloudComputing contracts and services

In most European jurisdictions, cloud computing services are generally not specifically regulated under law or directly addressed in case law. We clarify some aspects and provide guidelines.

While case law that expressly mentions cloud computing contracts is still scarce, the courts have issued decisions that may in fact apply to these contracts even though direct reference to cloud computing is not made .

Final version of SLALOM Legal model terms

Final version of SLALOM Legal Model Terms

The purpose of this document is to provide a revised, and final, version of the legal model presented under the Deliverable D2.1 in the light of the recommendations that have been suggested by some stakeholders through their feedback. Moreover, this document is intended to reconsider some of the legal issues addressed in D2.1 due to the ongoing changes in the European legal framework occurring in the past few months, especially in the context of the Digital Single Market initiatives.
