Google needs to change its cost, licensing and privacy fineprint to bag more enterprise clients
so "According to the Forum, Google needs to change its cost, licensing and privacy fineprint to bag more enterprise clients "
shock horror, problems with a big global outsourcer privacy detail, costs and licensing
thats the problem when your data is held by an overseas company with data centres all round the world (not just having a go at oogle here, many others as well),
in the EU we have DPA, if the data is in the US it can be held under "safe harbour" agreement ( but that is a voluntary agreement), many other countries you have to just your chances. for instance look at the instances of off shored call centre data breaches when they were the big thing until consumers voted with their feet / money
problem is when your data is held in the cloud, who owns the data, who can access the data, and who controls how long the data is retained for on backup after you leave the cloud?
also how can a company audit access controls to their data when they don't control the infrastructure it runs on?
to many questions for me with cloud based apps,
