IT Cloud Computing: An Intel cross-organizational group developed a common cloud computing taxonomy designed to meet Intel’s comprehensive requirements by classifying the entire breadth of existing cloud technologies. Based on this classification, diagramed in Figure 1 in this IT whitepaper, we created an ecosystem analysis that helps identify suppliers that meet Intel’s needs.

To develop a single taxonomy for use across Intel, we based our work on several externally developed taxonomies as well as Intel IT capability frameworks that describe our primary applications and infrastructure services.

The taxonomy provides a common terminology and baseline information that can be applied to help develop cloud strategies both for Intel’s IT environment and for Intel’s products and services.

Intel IT is using the taxonomy and analysis to facilitate internal discussions and identify innovative IT cloud computing solutions that deliver efficiencies.”
