Abstract: Cloud computing has changed the way that management information systems (MIS) service providers and their employees conduct business, and perform key tasks. This emerging cloud paradigm has significantly impacted the industry providing MIS database development services, from employee roles and competencies, to provision of services by development contractors. This paper examines how cloud computing has changed the necessary competencies, as well as the impact cloud computing is having on service providers. The paper concludes with recommendations on what service providers and their employees must do to remain relevant, current, and competitive as the cloud computing paradigm continues to emerge.
