Cloud Computing is the next evolution of computing systems, which shifts the whole application infrastructure away from old monolithic architectural models to more open, interoperable, modular, reusable and agile building blocks. Many Enterprises realize the benefits of Cloud Computing and position it as the Information Technology (IT) outsourcing solution, which is cheaper to operate and maintain. However, Cloud Computing is not just a technology behind an infrastructure, but also a new model, which needs to be properly merged with legacy paradigms of an Enterprise. In the authors' work, they are focused on the challenges Cloud Computing is bringing to an Enterprise along with the promising benefits.
