The aim of this research is to assess some published measurement models which evaluate the economic benefits for organizations regarding moving to cloud computing. The research aims also to check if any fine tuning is required to improve the models or if any additional factors need to be incorporated. Assessment and modification of the models are based on applying the models on real life case studies and comparing the output of the models with available info. A realistic case study from a big university is considered. The chosen university has already half-moved to cloud computing.
