About this book


With the emergence of cloud computing, traditional approaches to software engineering must be adapted in order to take full advantage of the benefits promised by cloud technologies.

This timely and authoritative text/reference presents the latest research on Software Engineering Frameworks for the Cloud Computing Paradigm, drawn from an international selection of researchers and practitioners. The book offers both a discussion of relevant software engineering approaches and practical guidance on enterprise-wide software deployment in the cloud environment, together with real-world case studies.

Topics and features:

  • Presents the state of the art in software engineering approaches for developing cloud-suitable applications
  • Discusses the impact of the cloud computing paradigm on software engineering, including the semantic web
  • Offers guidance and best practices for students and practitioners of cloud-based applications architecture
  • Examines the stages of the software development lifecycle, with a focus on the requirements engineering and testing of cloud-based applications
  • Reviews the efficiency and performance of cloud-based applications
  • Explores feature-driven and cloud-aided software design, presenting strategies for cloud adoption and migration
  • Provides relevant theoretical frameworks, practical approaches and current and future research directions

This practical and clearly-structured volume is an ideal self-study primer for students of cloud computing and software engineering. Software engineers, application developers and IT infrastructure managers will also find the work to be an invaluable reference.
