Technology is increasingly a key business asset, enabling some companies to expand in scale, operational efficiencies and scope of services through new or modified software, hardware and telecommunications. The types and complexity of technology-related agreements are evolving as sophisticated algorithms, artificial intelligence (AI), digital content and platforms, the Internet of Things (IoT), mobile apps, websites, social media, Software as a Service (SaaS), Platform as a Service (PaaS) and other forms of cloud computing expand and advance, changing the risk calculus for a variety of technology-related activities and transactions. The complexity of related contracts is also expanding, including complicated Service Level Agreements (SLAs) and related credits, Key Performance Indices (KPIs), limitations on liability and scope of warranties and indemnities.
This one-hour seminar will review key risk clauses and possible fallback provisions in common technology agreements including for cloud services such as SaaS and PaaS, for use of IoT devices and mobile apps, and for technology development and outsourcing agreements, and will include discussion of data protection terms, vendor co-employment issues, and “work made for hire” clauses, including possible rescission of certain assignments, licenses and transfer of rights by non-employee creators of copyrighted works such as software.
The seminar includes a Q&A session following the presentation.

Cloud computing is disrupting traditional operating models for IT departments and entire organizations. The cloud is embraced as a critical resource that helps companies make strategic investments and compete in the marketplace. The cloud environment is cost effective, and scalable company benefits include cost reduction, increased operational efficiencies and improved productivity/risks including data security, confidentiality, and control. Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) and Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS), using cloud resources to provide software and platform services under contract, are growing in importance for many companies as a way to offer new services without the expense of creating and maintaining an internal cloud environment or platform. This course will cover general issues in cloud services agreements, key clauses and issues in SaaS Agreements from a buyer’s perspective, key clauses and issues in PaaS agreements from the seller’s perspective, as well as recent cases, legislation and trends regarding cloud computing, including the Internet of Things.
