- In the future, we can imagine that it will be possible to find the solution that matches with our requirements by simply entering out request in a global digital market that trades with cloud computing services.
- The existence of such market will enable the automation of discovery process and its integration into its existing software systems.
- Due to the existence of a global platform for trading cloud services will also help service providers to potentially increase their revenue.
- A cloud provider can also become a consumer of a competition service in order to fulfil its promises to customers.
- In the near future we can imagine a solution that suits our needs by simply applying our application to the global digital market for cloud computing services.
- The presence of this market will enable the acquisition process to automatically integrate with its integration into its existing software applications. The availability of a global cloud trading platform will also help service providers to increase their revenue.
