Stephan Peters, LES Germany, and Dwight Olson, LES (USA & Canada), discuss how technology escrow, a common technique for avoiding quarrels between licensor‘s and licensee’s of software, is morphing and getting global attention to help make win-win situations in the cloud! This is the first article in a two part series on the emerging issues of having software and data in the cloud. These two articles begin to address the inherent complexity of managing the risk of software assets including data in the cloud. Part one will look at software programs and systems, then part two will focus on data. This article assumes the reader is generally familiar with classical software escrow and cloud computing concepts including SAAS, PAAS and IAAS.
