CSCC Deliverables:  

  • Web Application Hosting Cloud Architecture
    This paper describes vendor neutral best practices for hosting web applications using cloud computing. The architectural elements described in the document are needed to instantiate a web application hosting environment using private, public or hybrid cloud deployment models.

  • Interoperability and Portability for Cloud Computing: A Guide
    Cloud computing is rapidly growing in importance for many organizations, with ongoing take-up of a wide range of cloud services and the transition of both data and applications to cloud computing environments. The topics of interoperability and portability are significant considerations in relation to the use of cloud services, but there is also confusion and misunderstanding of exactly what this entails. The aim of this Guide is to provide a clear definition of interoperability and of portability and how these relate to various aspects of cloud computing and to cloud services.

  • Migrating Applications to the Cloud: Assessing Performance and Response Time Requirements
    This paper is a supplement to "Migrating Applications to Public Cloud Services: Roadmap to Success." The CSCC expands upon the importance of thoroughly assessing performance and response time requirements and the potential effects of increased network latency as it relates to assessing applications and workloads and adopting a flexible integration model. A best practice perspective of how to perform this type of analysis is highlighted. 

  • CSCC Deploying Big Data Analytics Applications to the Cloud
    This paper’s primary focus is to provide guidance to cloud service customer organizations in all industries on how best to deploy new and existing Big Data analytics applications to the cloud.
     
  • The CSCC Practical Guide to Cloud Computing V2.0
    Much has changed in the realm of cloud computing since the original Practical Guide to Cloud Computing was published in 2011. Version 2.0 contains numerous updates.
     
  • Social Business in the Cloud: Achieving Measureable Business Results
    Social Business is the convergence of social collaborative capabilities and enterprise business processes. These two seemingly independent activities, when brought together transform the way businesses interact with their employees, partners and customers. This transformation is achieved by empowering participants to connect and interact with each other; as well as, contribute or consume content in the context of a business process. This paper introduces principles that are a guide to succeeding with social business technologies.
     
  • Migrating Applications to Public Cloud Services: Roadmap for Success
    Across all industries, momentum is building to migrate applications to cloud computing. However, the migration of applications to cloud computing must be done in a strategic and methodical manner. Existing enterprise applications must be thoroughly assessed to determine which workloads can benefit most from early migration to the cloud. Key considerations including costs of migration, application redesign, application performance and availability, security and privacy requirements, and regulatory requirements must be taken into account.
     
  • Cloud Security Standards: What to Expect & Negotiate
    The current landscape for information security standards specifically targeted for cloud computing environments is best characterized as immature but emerging. This paper focuses primarily on information security requirements for public cloud deployment since this model introduces the most challenging information security concerns for cloud service customers. As cloud service customers assess the security standards support of their cloud service providers, it is important to understand and distinguish the different types of security standards that exist.
     
  • Convergence of Social, Mobile and Cloud: 7 Steps to Ensure Success 
    The aim of this guide is to provide a practical reference to help enterprise information technology (IT) and business decision makers as they analyze and consider the implications of the convergence of social, mobile and cloud technologies on their business. The paper includes a list of steps, along with guidance and strategies, designed to help decision makers evaluate and compare offerings in key areas from different providers.
     
  • Public Cloud Service Agreements: What to Expect and What to Negotiate
    This paper provides cloud consumers with a pragmatic approach to understand and evaluate public cloud service agreements. The recommendations in this paper are based on a thorough assessment of publicly available agreements from several leading public cloud providers. In addition to this paper, a great deal of research and analysis regarding the landscape of cloud service agreements is available in the CSCC companion paper, the “Practical Guide to Cloud Service Level Agreements.”

  • Impact of Cloud Computing on Healthcare
    The "Impact of Cloud Computing on Healthcare" whitepaper provides a practical reference to help enterprise information technology (IT) and business decision makers as they analyze and consider the implications of cloud computing on their business. The paper includes guidance and strategies, designed to help these decision makers evaluate and compare cloud computing offerings in key areas from different cloud providers, taking into account different requirements from various actors including medical practices, hospitals, research facilities, insurance companies and governments.
     
  • The CSCC Practical Guide to Cloud Service Level Agreements
    The Guide highlights the critical elements of a service level agreement (SLA) for cloud computing and provides guidance on what to expect and what to be aware of when negotiating an SLA. The guide articulates a set of requirements from a consumer's perspective and identifies elements that need to be addressed via open standards through CSCC's liaison partnerships with key standards development organizations.

  • Security for Cloud Computing: 10 Steps to Ensure Success  The Security for Cloud Computing white paper provides a practical reference to help enterprise information technology (IT) and business decision makers as they analyze and consider the security implications of cloud computing on their business. The paper includes a list of steps, along with guidance and strategies, designed to help these decision makers evaluate and compare security offerings in key areas from different cloud providers.
