Cloud services: There are services for business and consumers that can be virtualized over the internet in real-time. This kind of services exposed through the different clouds are the cloud services. We can consider that the Cloud Services are provided by third-party provider, they are accessed via the Internet, they don’t need high IT skills/knowledge, they facilitate the provisioning (automatic deployment, scalability...) and the pricing, they provide graphical user interfaces to manage them, they provide system interfaces (WS, RESTFul API...) and they share resources and services for different customers. These cloud services should be included as part of our business process. Hence, I wonder which range of this services we need to cover.
