Park City – UT– www.e-janco.com – Janco Associates, Inc. has just released the definitive How to Guide for Cloud Processing and Outsourcing (see https://e-janco.com/cloud.htm). The CEO of Janco, Mr. M.V. Janulaitis said, “Cloud processing and Outsourcing are no longer a slam dunk for the CIO. Balancing control, service levels, KPI metrics, costs, compliance, and risks make these decisions more complex and potential career altering for the CIO and those making these decisions.”
In a recent study of why CIO continue to choose outsourcing, Janco Associates found that 86% of the CIOs are doing it because they need more resources and skills than they have available. Janulaitis said, “The current economic climate is driving this. That along with an IT job market that is tight are key components of the accelerated move to the Cloud (and outsourcing). CIOs need solutions now and have little choice other the cloud.” He added, “Other contributing factors are: need for better infrastructure support, service level demands, and competitive market pressures.”
The guide contains critical checklists for Cloud/Outsourcing Security with an eye to the future in addition to the traditional Security Audit checklists. These tools meet all mandated requirements from GDPR to ISO. KPI metrics are provided with appropriate Service Level Agreement samples.
