JClouds is an open source Java library. The API allows to create portable cloud applications, which can be connected to different cloud providers without changing any code.
XMPP is a standardized technology that uses XML messages for communication. It supports arbitrary structured messages, the management of communication partners that know each other and can communicate with each other. It supports file transfer and even VoIP calls. It is near-real time, secure and there are simple solutions to circumvent the problem of local firewalls. Most of the clients and servers are open-source and can easily be extended with a plugin system. The server systems (example: OpenFire) are open source, can be installed as distributed server systems on all operating systems. Working with XMPP from programming code is very easy as there are client libraries available for all popular programming languages and frameworks.
XMPP is not only the technology behind known IM services like Facebook-Chat, GTalk and Jabber but also in medical, research and business systems for communication of computer systems. (citations needed)

This work aims at identifying the key business model elements necessary to build a
business model for virtual enterprises. Consequently, we formulate our research
question as follows: What are the relevant elements for the business model development
of a virtual enterprise? This study followed two steps. First, we reviewed the literature
on both areas of business model development) and virtual enterprises, in order to identify the business model elements suitable for virtual enterprises. Second, we carried out a pilot case study to verify if the business model elements identified are considered in practice. The case study selected is a virtual enterprise of five members formed in the Northern Region of Portugal to explore a customer need.
