Chapter title: The SMAC Opportunity Contracts: Generating Value from Responsive Agile Risk Oriented Techniques
Abstract: The concept of Social, Mobile, Analytics and Cloud (SMAC) is increasingly asserted as the phenomena with the potential to change technology and business relationships. Plenty of Middle Circles (MCs) are being introduced as principal suppliers, integrators or outsourced contractors. This is reducing the Client Enterprises’ (CE) controls over their technology assets. Because SMAC is not mature yet, its nature is very disruptive and agile, thus rapidly changing the landscape of contracting, and ultimately turning the long-held promise of utility-based computing into a reality. Such changes necessitate contracting transformation with innovated approaches to get targeted benefits, reduce risks and control operation standards and/or the legal framework. The main objective of this chapter is to provide some guidelines to generate SMAC opportunity contracting schemes that are responsive and agile to gain maximum business value, while influencing other related factors: maximizing benefits, limiting risks and supporting the roles and obligations in an ever‑changing environment.
