Cloud Computing Structure, Use, and Presence won the Student Paper Competition. The team consisted of Ball State University students Victoria Bishop, Sophie Guetzko, Quinn Sheridan, Katelyn Zehner, Nick Griggs and Chiedza Mawema.
The following is the abstract of the winning paper:
“Cloud Computing is a technological resource that provides the ability to access information from any location with a storage server and the Internet. The two platforms identified in cloud computing include public and private sectors. These sectors determine the level of confidentiality and type of server. Additionally, these sectors provide availability for three types of cloud services: Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), Platform as a Service (PaaS), and Software as a Service (SaaS). Identification of current industry leaders, major leadership and industry changes, cloud security, industry disruption, and the impact of technology in this industry also hold significance in understanding the use and function of cloud computing.”
