Adapting Service Development Life-cycle for Cloud

George Feuerlicht, Hong Thai Tran


As the adoption of cloud computing gathers momentum, many organizations are facing new challenges that relate to the management of cloud computing environments that may involve hundreds of autonomous cloud services provided by a large number of independent service providers. In this paper we argue that the large-scale use of externally provided cloud services in enterprise applications necessitates re-assessment of the SOA paradigm. The main contribution of this paper is the identification of the differences between service provider and service consumer SDLC cycles and the description of the service consumer SDLC phases.
