Cloud Development

Cloud development refers to the creation and evolution of platforms by cloud providers to meet the needs of their clients. These could come in the form of add-ons to existing applications, the creation of new, stand-alone applications or web services, or open platforms which allow application developers to use any server, programming language, operating system or database they desire. Cloud development also refers to the continued and ongoing improving of an application.
