Most of the studies have already focused on the interplay between project management and cloud computing. Further observations have made over the project management practices that have been adopted in the online gaming world. Some of the cloud-based services that have been discussed before include the IaaS, PaaS and the SaaS. The worrying side is how these services seem to influence the profound project management practices. In most cases, the collaborative software would essentially unite the virtual workforce in an attempt of making the fundamental experience work in a more natural and productive way. Ginger Levin and John Wyzalek (2014) asserted that co-location is one of the fundamental driving principles attached to productivity and team unity. In the modern era, the most profound integrated applications are inclined towards social computing as it is the case with the social networks, RSS Feeds, blogs and the wikis.
Ginger Levin and John Wyzalek (2014) also highlighted that cloud-based service impact the project management practices by providing the necessary tools and resources including the shared task list, automated notification, document repositories, shared project flowcharts and the necessary project workspaces. The tools provide a platform for virtual teamwork, which paves way for cloud computing. Therefore, cloud collaboration provides a fundamentally enabling and convenient network access by bridgi9ng the configurable computing resources that are not limited to the services, applications, networks, storage and servers. The cloud model or the cloud-based services impacts project management practices by facilitating the essential characteristics. First, Ramazani and Jergeas (2015) argue that the first characteristic cloud-based services or cloud collaboration offers to project management practices revolves around dynamic computing infrastructure. The foundation for the latter is grounded on scalability, standards as well as secure physical infrastructure.
