Researchers from the Software Institute at the Università della Svizzera italiana (USI) are going to edit a special issue of IEEE Software about Cloudware Engineering.

Cloudware Engineering employs systematic, disciplined, and quantifiable approaches to the development, operation, and maintenance of a specific type of software: cloud-native applications. Delivering such applications requires us to revisit traditional software engineering theories, methods, architectures, technologies, and tools to guarantee the delivery of applications that are scalable, elastic, portable, resilient, and adaptable for the cloud.

This IEEE Software theme issue intends to identify the foundations of cloudware engineering as a discipline to systematically manage the lifecycle of cloud-native applications requirements specification, design, implementation, deployment, operations, maintenance, and evolution.

The editors of this special issues are:
