Description

The questions below are based on the following attached two published case studies of cloud computing technology selection/adoption/migration:

The City of Pittsburgh Goes to the Cloud (.pdf)

Selecting a Suitable Cloud Computing Technology Deployment Model for an Academic Institute (.pdf)

Evaluate, discuss, and critique in detail the cloud migration approaches followed by the two organizations above, by comparing and contrasting the facts in each case study with the proposed cloud computing management criteria outlined in the following two documents —

Part I–A practical framework for managing cloud computing risk (.pdf)

Part II–A practical framework for managing cloud computing risk (.pdf)

You are also encouraged to employ other sets of prescriptive recommendations for the management of cloud computing, i.e., additional evaluative frameworks published elsewhere, in order to discuss and critique the approaches described in the two case studies above.
