Abstract

The advent of the Internet of Things (IoT) is changing the way to conceive distributed systems. Nowadays, we can talk about IoT and Cloud computing to indicate a new type of distributed system consisting of a set of smart objects which are interconnected through the Internet with a remote Cloud infrastructure, platform, or software.
IoT promises to achieve new benefits in several industrial businesses. Among these, the Oil and Gas (O&G) industries can achieve the greatest benefit by using the IoT as enabler of new sources of information.
In this paper, a simulation-based Multi Criteria Decision Making (MCDM) brokerage strategy is presented. The goal is to allow cooperative small-medium size IoT Cloud providers to satisfy the request for IoT-Cloud services, with a good compromise between service level and business for the O&G industries.
