Negotiating a successful data center outsourcing arrangement

Outsourcing can save money. However, it can also increase costs, lose control of your company's central nervous system and increase business risk.

The following presentation was given at Data Center Decisions Spring 2005 in New York.

Data center outsourcing can be a way to save money, improve service and focus on your core business. However, it can also be a way to increase costs, lose control of your company's central nervous system and increase business risk. Structuring and negotiating the right outsourcing deal can make the difference.

In this session, Brad Peterson, Partner, Mayer, Brown, Rowe & Maw LLP describes how you can:

  • Identify the issues that make the difference between success and failure
  • Align the service provider's incentives with your company's objectives
  • Get the savings that your company expects
  • Maintain control of critical processes, including those affecting Sarbanes-Oxley compliance
  • Position yourself to smoothly manage an outsourcing arrangement
