The focus of this paper lies on the business aspects of cloud computing. Besides elaborating on a comprehensive definition of cloud computing its main contribution is a conceptual compilation of cloud actors and their roles within a new cloud computing value network and a conceptual  evelopment of a generic value network of different actors in cloud computing. Extending the prevailing technical perspective of cloud computing, this paper shifts the focus from an exclusive technological perspective to a broader understanding of business opportunities and business value.
