Requirements Engineering for Cloud Computing
Cloud computing gets increasingly established in industrial practice as an option for modeling cost-efficient and demand-oriented information systems. Despite the increasing acceptance of cloud computing within the industry many important questions remain unanswered. Issues related to the best architectures, legal issues and pricing models, suppliers of cloud-based solutions are faced with the question of appropriate requirements engineering. This means eliciting optimum understanding of the customer's requirements and implementing this into appropriate requirements of the solution to be realized. This contribution evaluates selected requirements engineering methods in terms of their applicability to the specific requirements of cloud-based solutions.
