This White Paper describes the key areas that an organization needs to address when adopting the Cloud paradigm and transforming to a Cloud-enabled enterprise. It contends that enterprise architecture and enterprise architects have a significant role to play in this process, and that architecture frameworks such as TOGAF® 9 and techniques such as service-orientation can be leveraged to accelerate delivery.
Description

Details

Organizations are increasingly looking to incorporate service offerings from Cloud service providers. Architecture plays an important role to help determine the type of service that end users actually require and are willing to pay for. This White Paper outlines an approach that is intended for use by CIOs, business architects, and line-of- business personnel interested specifying what they need rather than being sold on what they do not need.

This White Paper supports The Open Group vision to enable Boundaryless Information Flow by allowing end-user organizations to engage with Cloud service providers in an intelligent, constructive dialog within the formal framework outlined.
