Cloud Computing Strategy and Advice
Galexia is at the cutting edge of providing strategic advice and analysis of cloud computing issues to a range of global clients. We have developed unique methodologies for assessing cloud readiness, and we provide advice on legal and regulatory challenges as well as infrastructure issues.
Galexia is experienced in assisting individual organisations to make the transition to cloud computing, while managing their legal and regulatory responsibilities. This has included advice on privacy, security and intellectual property issues as clients utilise cloud services to store and process data or to take advantage of online services.
Galexia’s team has also completed some of the world’s largest comparative analysis of whether countries are ready for cloud computing, including the analysis of laws, regulation, policy and infrastructure in 14 Asia Pacific countries in 2011 and 24 global countries in 2012, 2013 and 2015.
