Cloud Computing in the Curricula of Schools of Computer Science and Information Systems
Lawler, James P.
Information Systems Education Journal, v9 n2 p34-54 Jun 2011
The cloud continues to be a developing area of information systems. Evangelistic literature in the practitioner field indicates benefit for business firms but disruption for technology departments of the firms. Though the cloud currently is immature in methodology, this study defines a model program by which computer science and information systems students can learn needed skills in cloud computing strategy and technology. The study emphasizes problem-solving skills relative to elements of performance, process and security of cloud computing systems that are limiting investment in the cloud computing paradigm. This study benefits educators in schools of computer science and information systems considering curricula enhancement for the cloud and will also benefit technology departments of firms that will be needing skilled students once cloud computing becomes mainstream in industry.
