Let`s take the example of a service that offers 99.99% availability. Often these goals are on a monthly window, so for our calculation, we will accept 30 days a month. This leaves us: Generous service credit refunds can be attractive, but sometimes only cover the time your app was unable to access the service and, in many cases, need your own due diligence to get compensation. For example, Cloud Services SLA requires Google specifically for Maps to report the suspected problem within 30 days to qualify for the service credit. Don`t assume that the Supplier, even if it sends default notifications, automatically refunds eligible cancellation periods. If we do not reach and manage service levels for each service as described in this ALS, you may be eligible for credit on a portion of your monthly service charge. We will not change the terms of your ALS for the initial duration of your subscription; However, if you extend your subscription, the current version of this ALS on the renewal date applies throughout the extension period. We will provide at least 90 days in advance for significant changes to this ALS. In our survey of the performance of >1000 API, we found that there was a persistent margin of error of about 0.5%.
But all services have downtime, for example for maintenance. The most important measure, therefore, is the consistency of the service over time. Some SLAs will mix elements of the customer agreement with the company`s offerings. If we look at insurance, we are primarily looking for destination availability, service credits and support response time. Use the metrics above, and determine which levels work best for your needs when negotiating. If in doubt, contacting the supplier`s sales team is a good place to start if you can`t find clear answers to your offer. At Bearer, we have brought together the SLAs for a large number of suppliers. Below are SLAs for some of the most widely used APIs and web services. The definition of ALS should involve at an early stage all relevant internal and external actors (for example.
B the executives at level C, the legal department, the security officer). API providers should have the SLA specification verified and approved by a well-defined group of these stakeholders (for example. B of the legal department). Plan ahead, as several iterations are usually required, which can take a long time due to the full schedules. The SLA Content and Formulation Agreement is a negotiation process.1 2.1 “Time not available” means that the Cronofy API is not available based on the services provided by Cronofy at its discretion.
