Need a continuity or escrow solution?

If a cloud service provider goes bankrupt, has been granted a moratorium or simply decides to terminate a service, the customer needs to have an arrangement ensuring continued access to the data, and preferably also to the application. At least until an alternative has been found. This requires a practical and legally sound continuity or escrow solution. Legal ICT is specialised in this field.

What if a cloud service is no longer provided?

It is important – for both the customer and provider – to consider what the consequences would be of a bankruptcy and how these can be addressed. This should obviously be done well in advance. Given the consequences of such an event, making proper arrangements for a continuity or escrow solution is essential. After all, if the online accounting package or CRM package is no longer available, the customer’s operations will also flatline.
