The new IT architecture, however, also has significant effects on the sectors of organizational and technical structures, staff, and infrastructure of the companies concerned. These effects are discussed from the viewpoints of both the user and provider. Subsequently, the technical setup of typical cloud infrastructures and the security mechanisms and technologies related are discussed. The BootCamp is concluded with a market overview, the discussion of state-of-the-art offers and a preview.
