Application of cloud technologies in constructing situation management systems

Oleksii Kovalenko


The issues of multipurpose situation management systems design and organization with using of cloud computing principles are discussed in the paper. The features of development and effective exploitation such systems were analyzed. And the classification of corporate applications from functional point of view was proposed.

Keywords: situation management systems, information service, cloud computing.
