Comparative study of Traditional Software Development and Development on Cloud

Manish Joshi, Dr. Dhirendra Pandey


Berners-Lee’s has said that “the original idea of the web was that it should be a collaborative space where you can communicate through sharing information” and with his vision of the Web 3.0 the transformation of the World Wide Web into an intelligent Web system. With the advent of new technology new business models are being incorporated to host the applications on the Web as services. These Web services are being designed to be automatically discovered by software agents and exchange data among themselves. Cloud computing model, which has gained a lot of attention, in which hardware, software, tools, and applications are given out as services to users across the globe over the Internet for very low cost or no cost at all. There are many advantages of this cloud computing business model, as it requires very low capital expenditure, it has higher speed of application deployment to market, low cost of operation, and easy maintenance of the software services. Because of these advantages, cloud may soon become the most prevalent computing platform. The traditional engineering practices were not made keeping cloud computing platform in mind. To get the best of the all the advantages of cloud computing, we need to change the traditional way of software engineering. This paper, focus on how cloud computing, is going to influence the traditional software engineering processes to develop quality software and how we adapt the traditional software engineering process to cloud computing environment.
