Lean thinking principles for cloud software development: Research Summary

Research output: Book/ReportReport

Abstract

This research summary focuses on the principles and concepts of lean thinking. In addition, the link between the cloud phenomenon and lean thinking was drawn. As was evident from this research summary, concepts, cloud and lean, are difficult to describe explicitly. Cloud is one of the main global trends washing through the ICT industry, bringing in changes to the current technological and business environment. Even though cloud is referred in many contexts, it does not yet have a clear and complete definition in literature. In this paper, we consider cloud more widely than just cloud computing. We believe that lean thinking is one of the most powerful means to help companies to survive and create a competitive advantage in the cloud business environment.
