Strategies for deploying business applications on the cloud
Computer Information Systems
This paper starts with a summary of "Cloud computing" including Cloud service modes, deployment models, and Cloud environments. It then discusses the Cloud and its impact on business including opportunities and trends for the deployment of business applications on the Cloud. Examples of such applications are then discussed. This is followed by an evaluation of the benefits, risks, and costs of doing business in the Cloud. Finally, the paper discusses appropriate strategies for deploying business applications on the Cloud. The discussion is augmented, when appropriate and feasible, with mathematical models for calculating costs and assessing risks of some of these strategies.
