Track 4: Cloud Transition Management:

The projected benefits of the cloud computing paradigm are very compelling: leveraging economies of scale, automated ad-hoc service deployment, low capital expenses, variable pricing schemes, to name only a few. However, their actual realization and current adoption rates are far from being well-achieved. Enabling corporations to implement efficient new business models utilizing ecosystems of services delivered over the cloud poses a range of interesting management challenges.

  • Economics of Cloud services
  • Markets and marketplaces for cloud services
  • Quality of cloud services
  • Service pricing and contracting models
  • Monitoring and performance prediction of cloud infrastructures
  • KPIs and Cloud Governance
  • Migration and evolution of enterprise applications in clouds
  • IT service management processes in cloud infrastructures
  • Virtualization and provisioning strategies
  • Capacity planning and automated resource allocation
