COMP5850M Coursework 2 – 2019/2020
Deadline: Wednesday 29 April 2020, 17:00
Cloud computing has led to several advancements in the underlying technologies such as containers and Software
Defined Networks. These developments in turn have led to several emerging trends such as Edge computing, serverless
computing, and Software Defined Computing. In addition to these, other emerging trends in ICT such as Big Data,
machine/deep learning and blockchain technology have started influencing the cloud computing research agenda and
have offered wide opportunities to deal with the open issues in cloud related challenges, e.g. security.
The research paper A Manifesto for Future Generation Cloud Computing: Research Directions for the
Next Decade [BSC+18] identifies the major open challenges in cloud computing, emerging trends, and impact
areas. It then offers research directions for the next decade, thus helping in the realisation of future generation
cloud computing. This piece of coursework requires you to review this paper emphasising on the current/future
developments in application domains and other aspects such as architectures, technologies, performance etc.
You should ensure the on-going knowledge sharing activities for this piece of work is supported. You probably are
aware that this assessment will be subjective as it is the work/opinion of one student. Hence what we are looking for
is a systematic approach to evaluation and an effective presentation of the reasoning.
