Cloud Computing Applications and Information Services: Reflections from Turkey

Özgür Külcü, Ömer Dalkıran

Abstract


Nowadays library and information profession is facing increasing pressures to achieve higher performance in a fast paced and competitive global environment. Today services provided by libraries are based on the newest, cutting edge technology and professional organizations have a major role to play in this developmental process. Recent developments in digital technology, wireless communication, knowledge management, outsourcing and the like are affecting the knowledge and skills of information professionals to do their job effectively on a daily or long-term basis. In that context, information professionals focus on studies such as digitization of print materials, metadata standards, property rights, preservation, the development of network infrastructure, storage solutions, cloud information management, multi-media technologies, automation and standardization, institutional repositories, development of cooperation frameworks, e-publishing and web content management. As part of these developments, information systems and applications are increasingly driven by cloud computing opportunities. In this framework, our study is focus on current cloud computing implementations in general and in information disciplines. In addition this study represents the potential benefits and risks of cloud applications with the example of international and locally in Turkey. In general cloud computing is directly related to the information systems because it is based on processing of information, management of system, and repository of information. Moreover future trends of Information systems are seen in cloud applications may create new dimensions to information disciplines. Furthermore cloud applications may not directly relate with information systems is also part of this study because of the nature of cloud applications.
