Primary Discussion Response is due by Wednesday (11:59:59pm Central), Peer Responses are due by Sunday (11:59:59pm Central).

Your initial reports to the executive leadership have gone over very well, and they are interested to see what the next steps are. Your chief information officer (CIO) wants you to dig deeper and provide more comprehensive information on the approaches that should be considered for cloud computing. You are to look at the business as a collection of services and the service-based approach to cloud computing.

Primary Task Response: Within the Discussion Board area, write 400–600 words that respond to the following questions with your thoughts, ideas, and comments. This will be the foundation for future discussions by your classmates. Be substantive and clear, and use examples to reinforce your ideas.

  • Research the "as-a-service" type of approach to cloud computing while considering Software as a Service (SaaS), Identity as a Service (IDaaS), Platform as a Service (PaaS), and Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS). How can these approaches reduce costs and add value?
  • Specific attention should also be given to the (SaaS) cloud model. How can this model reduce costs and add value to collaboration services like Web mail, messaging, file share, and project management?
  • Include in your analysis a discussion on Identity as a Service (IDaaS). How would IDaaS integrate with the on-premise solutions for human resources, supply chains, and collaboration services in a SaaS solution? 

Responses to Other Students: Respond to at least 2 of your fellow classmates with at least a 100-word reply about their Primary Task Response regarding items you found to be compelling and enlightening. To help you with your discussion, please consider the following questions:

  • What did you learn from your classmate's posting?
  • What additional questions do you have after reading the posting?
  • What clarification do you need regarding the posting?
  • What differences or similarities do you see between your posting and other classmates' postings?

For assistance with your assignment, please use your text, Web resources, and all course materials.
