  • Copie et al. 2013 (†740 p. 228): Cloud governance and cloud management are directly interlaced. While governance “ensures that enterprise objectives are achieved by evaluating stakeholders’ needs, conditions and options through decision making, prioritization, monitoring of performance and compliance”, cloud management assures that the enterprise objectives set by the governance layer are achieved through planning, deploying, running and monitoring current activities. ¶Three simple principles are set in relation with cloud governance and management tasks: ·  Complete solution evaluation (current / future), including current strategies, proposals and supply arrangements (be it internal or external), trends that may affect the solution (technological, economical, social or political changes). ·  Complete implementation of plans and policies to ensure that the solution meets its design objectives. ·  Complete monitoring of conformance to policies and performance against the design objectives.
