1 EuroCloud Star Audit A strong partnership that provides you with a competitive advantage

2 Strong and advantageous?

3 5 topics to consider 99% of all organisations are SME, with little internal Know- how. This needs to be compensated for,with professional tools and actions Cloud Service customers have hundreds of questions These questions need to be answered well - otherwise the level of trust is too low. This causes high cost for procurement and it takes too long. Cloud Service providers do not always know the answers to these questions. Missing transparancy lead to high cost of sales and it takes too long. One bad Cloud Service provider can harm the reputation of many. This can effect an entire group or even a platform of providers. Cloud Service providers who are well prepared need an instrument to demonstrate their maturity. They want to receive competetive advantages, reduce the cost of sales and speed up the process

4 Does Certification help? from Outsourcing to Cloud Sourcing It is d ifferent New Challenges Other Assessment New Requirements Most Cloud Services have a supply chain with multiple suppliers. Cloud Sourcing requires a different view on risk management. Cloud Procurement demands different assessments. Providers offer standard services. Customers have individual use- cases. Customers ask for transparency Customers see the risk but have little know- how to handle it Customers and providers see the duration and cost of this process Finding a match is not an easy task

5 What is the goal? Cloud Demonstrate the maturity level of their services to the market Service Reduce the need to answer the same questions Providers Negotiate and sell in a trustworthy environment quickly Cloud Compare services faster and with less effort Service Identify transparent and good providers Customers Experience a trustworthy environment and buy faster

6 Your business case? Faster Cloud Service Customers Sales Process Cost of sales Procurement process Cost of Procurement Lower Cloud Service Providers

7 Why with EuroCloud Star Audit? Faster Cloud Service Customers Because it gives an answer to allcost relevant uestions of sqales Because it gives answers that are easy to understand Because it can be used by providers and customers Because it is 100% transparent Cost of Because EuroCloud has a 100% neutral role Procurement Lower Cloud Service Providers
