Comparison of companies to adopt cloud computing

Cloud Computing is considered one of the top five emerging technologies that will have a major impact on the quality of science and society over next 20 years. It provides a way to centralize the setup, implementation, maintenance, and management of integrated computation services to individual and corporate end users.

This course provides a graduate-level comprehensive introduction to cloud computing with an emphasis on advanced topics. It is designed in a workshop format with three workshops focusing on key topics. Each workshop includes a call for papers corresponding to the main theme of the workshop, a keynote presentation to provide a conceptual background on the topic, and your paper submission and online presentation. You will develop a final paper on cloud computing to submit to a related international conference as one of the outcomes of this course. The first workshop focuses on cloud computing concepts, technological foundations, infrastructure, and architecture. The second workshop targets security and technology challenges. The third workshop concentrates on applications, implementation issues, and management and governance. The goal of the final paper is to present a new idea or innovation using cloud computing.

Course Objectives

The objective of this course is to provide graduate students of MSc Information Systems with the comprehensive and in-depth knowledge of Cloud Computing concepts, technologies, architecture and applications by introducing and researching state-of-the-art in Cloud Computing fundamental issues, technologies, applications and implementations. Another objective is to expose the students to frontier areas of Cloud Computing and information systems, while providing sufficient foundations to enable further study and research.

Learning Outcomes

Completing this course should provide you with a good understanding of cloud computing and a systematic knowledge of the fundamental technologies, architecture, and security. I should provide a solid foundation for performing work related to cloud computing and for further research on topics of interest.

After successfully completing COMP 656, you should be able to

  • articulate the main concepts, key technologies, strengths, and limitations of cloud computing and the possible applications for state-of-the-art cloud computing
  • identify the architecture and infrastructure of cloud computing, including SaaS, PaaS, IaaS, public cloud, private cloud, hybrid cloud, etc.
  • explain the core issues of cloud computing such as security, privacy, and interoperability.
  • choose the appropriate technologies, algorithms, and approaches for the related issues.
  • identify problems, and explain, analyze, and evaluate various cloud computing solutions.
  • provide the appropriate cloud computing solutions and recommendations according to the applications used.
  • attempt to generate new ideas and innovations in cloud computing.
  • collaboratively research and write a research paper, and present the research online.
