Forrester provides you with a methodology to answer this question and help you determine the best fit for all types of outsourcing. This is key because many applications are not a good fit for cloud computing environments but are legitimate candidates for outsourcing in other ways. This report provides CIOs working on cloud computing a quick framework for making these build/buy decisions and introduces Forrester's strategic rightsourcing tool. This report is designed to help you rightsource your applications for the cloud.
