The authors present a descriptive literature review and classification scheme for cloud computing research. The papers are classified based on a scheme that consists of four main categories: technological issues, business issues, domains and applications, and conceptualizing cloud computing. The results show that although current paper is still skewed towards technological issues, new paper themes regarding social and organizational implications are emerging. This paper provides a reference source and classification scheme for IS researchers interested in cloud computing, and to indicate under-researched areas as well as future directions.
