Business Use Cases

  • NIST will lead interested USG agencies and industry to define target USG Cloud Computing business use cases (set of candidate deployments to be used as examples) for Cloud Computing model options, to identify specific risks, concerns and constraints. For example, a candidate deployment might be employee email or migration of a specific application system to a specific cloud computing model option. NIST will lead and facilitate this effort via the Federal CIO Council sponsored Cloud Computing Standards Working Group and working groups by NIST.


The Business Use Cases Working Group holds regular meetings via telecom every Friday from 11 am to 1 pm eastern time.
