Cloud Service Mediation through Brokerage Service

Claudio Giovanoli


As the cloud service market everywhere is rapidly growing, specially small and medium companies often are struggling by choosing the right service. Furthermore, already claiming the own requirements to such kind of service is a hurdle to use cloud services for SMEs. Thus, this research project copes with the issues of cloud requirement elicitation and the mapping of such requirements to the right service.
