Conference paper


In this paper several technical areas was selected to analyze the research fronts and hotspots of cloud computing. From the perspective of patent networks of cloud computing in global patent database, we summed up the development of global cloud computing. In the view of patents analysis, this paper puts forward the development directions of cloud computing as “one hard and one soft”, in two-way development which is the combination of information technology or new generation of information technology industry, and then provided the implementation of the cloud computing industry develop plan for China.
