Safeguarding your customer-supplier relationships

Avoiding a slow and painful break-up

Customer-supplier relationships are often like a marriage, though divorce isn't what you want, you have to prepare yourself for the eventuality. It's very similar when signing a contract with a cloud partner, you need to think about your exit strategy and accept that your relationship is likely to end for one reason or another.

A good exit strategy is consistent with the benefits of the cloud itself: it's flexible in capacity and provides continuity in the long-term. As it's difficult to define successful parting plans, we've created this checklist so you're protected in the event of a split.
