The aspect of virtualization and large scale distribution has brought forward the cloud computing phenomenon. Despite its popularity, most of the enterprises are still circumspect in getting into clouds completely. The major part of this circumspection owes to the factors of identity and access management, monitoring, auditing and reporting. The traditional access management will not suffice in the cloud context naturally. Also, every enterprise needs to monitor its employees as well as usage of services which will also assist in auditing. It will be better to have centralized monitoring clubbed with a centralized access management at the enterprise which coordinates with access management and monitoring as a service at the provider.
