Abstract: With an increasing footprint of Cloud in daily lives of individuals and businesses, the question of embracing Cloud is no longer on how, but how soon. Cloud is at the center stage on the topic of innovation and consumers find a differentiating advantage of with adoption of Cloud. This is aided due to multiple factors such as Open Source development, Big Data, and Social Computing being made available for consumer use. As a matter of fact the cloud computing technologies are now playing a very vital role in almost every commercial as well as non-commercial field; including large or small-scale businesses, IT organizations, Government, Quasi-Government, Public and Private sectors. The outreach of Cloud products and services has been the maximum in Individual Consumer segment due to the significant growth and innovation in Mobile space in the last decade. However in most cases, these services are pre-packaged and given to consumers, by manufacturers or service providers. The consumer has little choice to offer when they buy a packaged solution. The ability to appreciate the salient features and how can that be put to optimal use is a question that many consumers struggle with. The decision is also influenced by a variety of sources of information on cloud services and products who offer a good perspective, but often do not compare cloud products and services using a standard benchmarking technique. As it is a growing market, cloud providers try to attract the customers by highlighting only their strengths, and other marketing techniques. Over the last three research papers on similar topic, we have explained the rationale of why is a standard benchmarking technique needed, and how can that be achieved using a Service Demand Handler and Catalogue Manager for Cloud, and Unified Master Services Catalogue Manager. In this paper, we demonstrate how this technique can be used simulated using MATLAB software, and can be put to product implementation that can be used by standards benchmarking organizations such as IEEE or SPEC for further development.
