This research work was conducted to understand the relationship between the smart contracts and cloud computing governance. It helped to explore the existing weaknesses in cloud computing contracts and the associated risks such as understanding from the customer side (McGillivray, 2014). Therefore, there exist a great potential to further exploit this area and one can explore and provide much better understanding about the cloud computing governance and further address the role of governance. The existing contributions made in this area aren’t enough in number as well as in information, therefore further research contribution can help in understanding the existing barriers and overcome related challenges. Improved, clear and standardized smart contracts can lead to integrate governance and more options can offered to the customers by increasing their role. In future research, the aim is to continue to explore possibilities for making governance more realistic by providing better outline for user friendly cloud computing contracts which can further extend the role of customers in contracts. The main conclusion for this thesis is derived from the studies discussed and presented in chapter 3. According to first study; Smart Items, Fog and Cloud Computing as Enablers of Servitization in Healthcare, shed light on the role of smart items and cloud computing in healthcare and focused on the role of fog computing serving as an intermediary between devices and the cloud. The combination of the devices and the setup form an environment for rendering better services from the cloud including data analysis and data processing.
