The following list of cloud characteristics apply to IT organization in general even if an organization isn’t yet shifting to a cloud environment;
Real-time statistics, monitoring, and metering of services (transparency into the cloud environment)

This includes real-time monitoring of service status, metered resource utilization dashboards, and service-level agreement (SLA) reporting scorecards.
As applications are moved to the cloud, organizations want the ability to manage their account and application settings without having to submit a helpdesk ticket for routine tasks. This is often an overlooked or underestimated feature of a successful cloud offering.

User roles are defined within the cloud management system to allow placing orders, approving orders, or managing service subscriptions. These roles also define the visibility of service between users, so multiple organizations or tenants cannot see one another.
