Soňa Karkošková and George Feuerlicht
Cloud computing is changing the way that organizations utilize IT resources with a corresponding impact on the role of IT governance. This paper describes proposal of adapting SOA Governance Framework and COBIT 5 framework to govern cloud computing services from cloud consumer perspective. Proposed Cloud computing governance reference model takes into account the structure of SOA Governance Framework. Cloud computing governance reference model serves as a basis for the definition and establishment of Cloud computing governance and defines a set of new or redefined guiding principles, governing processes and governed processes based SOA Governance processes and COBIT 5 governance processes which are fully adapted to cloud computing environment from a cloud service consumer perspective. Proposal of Cloud computing governance reference model is an output of research process according to the Design Science Research Methodology.
