E-Portal Software Development Framework in Emerging Cloud Computing Environment

Abstract

Cloud computing is an emerging new technology context that introduces promising environment for computer applications. This context put the enormous resource capabilities of the globe under the disposal of the development lifecycle of a software system. The new emerging concept of cloud computing is turning web service into eUtility that can be delivered over the internet to consumers who are normally software application developers and consumers. eUtility has announced the start of new eCommerce era where eUtility is metered due to its usage by consumers. This paper is presenting a framework to model the evolutional impact of eUtility on software engineering lifecycle and introduces E-Portal concepts as software integration points to the cloud.
