Webinar to discuss cloud computing service agreements

Cloud computing offers significant benefits for companies, but how do service providers successfully price their products? This week’s Goodman School of Business Luncheon Speaker Series will examine the complex trade-offs service level agreements make when it comes to areas such as contract duration, price, penalties and availability guarantees. 

On Friday, March 5, Shuai Yuan, Assistant Professor of Finance, Operations and Information Systems at Goodman, will present co-authored research that delves into this topic during his talk, “Availability-aware Cloud Service Management.” 

Yuan joined the Goodman School of Business in 2018. He holds a PhD in Management Science and Systems from State University of New York at Buffalo. His current research interests include resource management, service availability analysis, and economics of service level agreement management in the cloud and high-performance computing.  

The Goodman Luncheon Speaker Series provides an informal opportunity to listen and discuss recent advances in research, teaching and practices with business colleagues virtually. 

The webinar will run from 12:30 to 2 p.m. on Microsoft Teams and is open for anyone to attend. RSVP to receive a link to the session by emailing Jasmine Stasiuk Riddell at jstasiukriddell@brocku.ca
