However, federal agencies have struggled with incorporating SLAs into cloud contracts that make sense for both the government and vendors.

The Marginal Customer


I start a lot of client engagements with a simple question: Who’s the customer? It’s amazing the answers that I get. Some people are really quite good. They know the customer’s demographic and business or personal needs, and they focus on those things. Others don’t even grasp the difference between a customer and a consumer.

It’s safe to assume that the days of Yahoo as a standalone business are numbered.”
