F. Ali, S. A. Ali, S. F. Hasan

Abstract


Information  Technology  (IT)  solutions  for  businesses  and  enterprise  are  increasingly becoming service oriented. Instead of system management tools, the IT sector has started offering service management tools that provide user-friendly solutions and require less human effort. The service management takes into consideration the customers’ viewpoint of the IT services, and hence are preferred by technical and non-technical users alike. On the other hand, the concept of cloud computing is also gaining immense popularity because it also adds significant value to businesses. Cloud computing ensures high scalability and availability of the infrastructure that may not necessarily belong to the business itself. This paper attempts to develop an association between cloud computing and service management techniques. It starts with an overview of both and explores the opportunities and challenges that are faced while merging these two together. Secondly, this paper explores the application of the clouds in challenged environments. It introduces vehicular communication as a potential application area of cloud computing.
