  • Maximilian Ahrens
Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 6369)


This paper examines the impact of the cloud computing paradigm on enterprise IT structures. The first section of the paper defines the term cloud computing with the relevant aspects for this paper. In the second chapter the paper shows the potential of cloud computing for the enterprise IT. In the last section the paper will briefly reflect how the future development of infrastructure technologies will create more potential for enterprise IT cloud cases in the future.
