CLOUD COMPUTING FRAMEWORK - A Framework to Evaluate Cloud Computing for IT Service Providers

Rebecca Bulander, Julian Dengler

Abstract

Cloud Computing will be one of the most important technology triggers in the information technology for the next two to five years. Thus companies which provide IT solutions have to evaluate Cloud Computing in the context of their customer-driven IT projects. For this evaluation of Cloud Computing there is a need for a comprehensive framework to analyse the project scenario, the requirements of costumers and business scenario of the IT provider. Therefore this paper provides an approach of a comprehensive evaluation model of Cloud Computing for a prospective Cloud Computing provider and includes all necessary aspects of customer-driven IT projects.
