Implications of the Code of Conduct for Cloud Infrastructure Service Providers in Europe
This IDC Market Perspective focuses on the 1Q17 launch of the Code of Conduct for Cloud Infrastructure Service Providers in Europe (CISPE), providing essential information on the items included and the ecosystem support. It also includes a preliminary assessment of the implications of such an initiative for both end customers purchasing cloud infrastructure services and service providers active in Europe.
"The CISPE Code of Conduct can be a very useful tool for European IT buyers. Clear Compliance Marks should simplify the selection process, but buyers should continue questioning and reading fine prints of their cloud infrastructure contracts," said Giorgio Nebuloni, research director, IDC European Infrastructure.
