The enterprise parking in cloud would open next level of patterns in partner and customer collaboration. This would require the applications exposed on such a platform to be
1. Adhering to standards for message interaction
2. Flexibility to move the app from one location to other in the cloud seamlessly or bring sections of the cloud to the app
3. Use of gradients within cloud that would specify secure zone, non secure zones or platinum zones for higher service levels and how they inter relate inter operate and interact.
Personal apps can be built within cloud which could plug in to services provided by various vendors, self service portals or even collaboration patterns and find out what is the best time to restock and from where. Such apps could be delivered in the form of Software as a service.
Services as cloud, services as exposed applications, but the questions are, is the services exposed over standards, promoting business agility and reuse. What would be the best and cost effective way to identify, expose and consume such apps/services? This is where SOA principles would be of immense value.
