Publication chemical/x-molconn-Z THE IMPACT OF USER EXPERIENCE WORK ON CLOUD SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT
Cloud computing is getting more popular means to provide software to end users. However, little is known about how to develop Cloud software that provides good user experience. This paper introduces an Agile software development model where a product owner and user experience specialist work closely together from the beginning. We followed a distributed project team consisting of a product owner, user experience specialist, technical specialist, scrum master, and five developers for eleven weeks. We observed that the project benefitted in several ways from the close cooperation between the product owner and user experience specialist. The project team was able to dramatically shorten their lead time, improve user satisfaction and decrease the amount of work in progress.

Publication What is "Cloud"?
This paper follows the history of the term “cloud” from the beginning of the Internet to the era of cloud computing, and ponders its past and current meaning. We argue that outsourcing is the primary meaning of “cloud”. We discuss elasticity and its significance in cloud computing. Elasticity is a key cost-cutting measure, especially for startup companies, but is not a requirement for cloud systems. We discuss the simple service layer model and the role of software components on different layers. We refine the model to better capture real-world use cases. This is achieved by dividing the layers into solutions and solutions further into components. Finally, we define a new computing business model. In this model, a company manages the entire computing experience of users. We conclude with discussion of the new business model and the possibilities it offers for users of the cloud.

Publication TOWARDS MOBILE DEVICE CLOUD
Although cloud computing has established itself as a novel paradigm, mobile devices have unique characteristics and capabilities that are not made part of a cloud. This paper presents the notion of a mobile device cloud: mobile devices become active members in the cloud, sharing content, resources, and services with each other. We discuss how the concepts of cloud computing could be applied to mobile device clouds. Further, the implementation of some key components in a mobile device cloud is discussed.
