This article discusses the areas in which semantic models can support cloud computing. Semantic models are helpful in three aspects of cloud computing. The first is functional and nonfunctional definitions. The ability to define application functionality and quality-of-service details in a platform-agnostic manner can immensely benefit the cloud community. The second aspect is data modeling. Semantic modeling of data to provide a platform-independent data representation would be a major advantage in the cloud space. The third aspect is service description enhancement.
