Interfaces, 38, 72-77.
The book analyzes the benefits and validity of adopting cloud computing operations in organizations. Chou intends to analyze value component and risks within cloud computing practices.. The author discusses the relationship between sustainable information technology and cloud computing practices. With employed survey, his value creation model shows safety and economical in terms of costs.
With exception, the author is aware of ever increasing need of cloud computing practices due to the advancement of technology, With limitation of experience and ethical implication of his research, the author has supplemented his methods and techniques with scholarly research on the dynamics in cloud practices, and. The study is timely and it will be able to guide accurately factors to be considered by the companies while making a decision on techniques of handling large data and analytical values.
The findings have identified possible gaps in technology and provide recommendations for the research community on future directions on Cloud-supported analytics and Big Data computing solutions. Some of the findings could be used to address issues that some organizations face in computing, data that is reliable and cost efficient for small business. Health care organizations are the best example of users that are struggling with this technology, but with these researches is possible to develop a model that is relatively compatible to health care organization environments.

prediction in-service clouds.” Information Systems Frontiers 16.1: 7-18.
The authors of this journal are concerned with the importance of scaling of cloud computation services. The experiment was based on the model of scalability that could improve on-demand computing power and storage capacities on different services.
To achieve their goal of testing scalability, they identified the time and techniques to scale virtual resources which are assigned to different services. With limited experience, they based their research on scholarly works; a novel service cloud architecture is used while a linear regression model is applied to predict the workload.
From the authorsâ€™â€™ experiment, they managed to find that scaling combines the pre-scaled and real time. The end result of this experiment demonstrates a reliable approach that satisfies user Service Level Agreement with minimal scaling costs.

cloud computing environments. Information Systems Frontiers, 16(1), 19-34
In this research, the authors present scalable and leaderless Byzantine consensus implementation basing on gossip that requires only n â‰¥ 2f + 1 nodes. The network topology of cloud computing services not always fully connected like the conventional distribution systems, in which each node maintains some neighbors known as local view.
The experiment involved techniques and computation of formulas that were previously established in other schemes. This supplemented the research with relevant materials in the field to attain their goal.
This model reflects the complexity of the Byzantine consensus scheme is O(n), instead of O(n 2). The research team found that the experiment positive outcome indicate that their Byzantine consensus scheme would address the Byzantine consensus problem safely on scalable way without a struggle and a leader in cloud computing services.

communication services. Information Systems Frontiers, 16(1), 1-5.
The three authors of this paper are concerned with ever increasing use of cloud services and emerging challenges and dynamic that as existed in the practice. The effort of cloud integrating with communication services being one of the challenges is one of the issues that the authors have identified to represent recent progress in the field which includes works on cloud architecture, management, mobile computing among others.
