Insights: Events SaaS, PaaS and IaaS: Evaluating Cloud Service Agreement Models, Negotiating Key Terms, and Minimizing Contract Disputes

Wednesday, March 9, 2016


This CLE webinar will provide guidance to business and technology counsel for drafting cloud computing service agreements on behalf of customers. The panel will examine the three different types of cloud computing service models—Software as a Service (SaaS), Platform as a Service (PaaS) and Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS)—with a focus on SaaS, and the most critical issues and concerns that counsel should address during contract negotiations to effectively mitigate risk.


Cloud computing services encompass three service delivery models—SaaS, PaaS and IaaS. In the SaaS model, software is provided as a service to the customer via the Internet. The PaaS model gives the customer a computing platform on which to develop and run their own applications. The IaaS model allows the customer to configure the system at the processing, storage and network level.

Agreements for all cloud computing service models should address, at a minimum, performance objectives, service levels and data privacy and security. Indemnification, intellectual property, limitations of liability, warranty, termination, transition assistance and data ownership are also key provisions.

Listen as our authoritative panel explains the differences between the three cloud computing service models, and key provisions and best practices for drafting cloud computing services agreements for each model.
