International Journal of Web and Grid Services (IJWGS), Vol. 11, No. 4, 2015


Abstract: This paper provides an overview of cloud governance aspects based on a representative survey of trends in the perception, assessment and adoption of cloud computing within the enterprise. The survey was conducted through a twofold research approach and combined a meta-study of existing and published empirical studies with an own empirical study within a representative group of European and international enterprises. We consider governance through the prism of adoption drivers and focus on the role of cloud brokers and cloud marketplaces more specifically, as well as the inclusion of semantic based strategies oriented to enhance the quality of service offered by cloud service brokers.
