What You Need to Know About the Emerging "As-A-Service" Offerings

Sourcing Interest Group (SIG)

There is a growing category of outsourcing services that have many of the characteristics of cloud services but are in fact not cloud services. While these service offerings (which we call XaaS) do not fit into the definition of cloud services, they are also very different from standard outsourcing services. XaaS offerings do not provide all of the benefits of cloud services but they offer many of the benefits of standardization without many of the pitfalls that stymie the adoption of cloud services by large companies. Susan Linnstaedter, of Bank of America, and Paul Roy, of Mayer Brown, will discuss how XaaS differs from standard cloud computing and outsourcing offerings and what distinguishes contracts for these services.
