Mobile Cloud Computing has become as a new IT paradigm because of the growth of mobile device like smartphone and appearance of Cloud Computing environment. This mobile cloud environment provides various services and IT resources according to users‘ requests, so an effective management of service and IT resources is required. Hence, this paper designs a profile on mobile cloud service platform in order to provide distributed IT resources and services to users based on context-awareness information. As the profile proposed in this paper uses context-aware information, it enables to provide more accurate personalized services and manage distributed IT resources.
