Process Aware Cloud Infrastructure

The primary enablement for this change as Red Hat points out, is through both open API’s that allow for ease of interconnection between services and a consistent process enabled taxonomy. We do see initiatives in the industry toward consistent taxonomies (ITIL and etc), but we have yet to see an effective, open, process enabled taxonomy that will allow the easy interconnection of the Cloud Stack directly to higher level enterprise business processes.  That is with the exception of those offered withing the walled gardens of vendors such as Microsoft, Saleforce, Infosys and others.
