In information society, digital convergence means a service or new product which appeared through fusion of unit technologies in information and communication regions. The effects of convergence technologies and social phenomenons are visualized in overall regions of society such as economy, culture, etc. Cloud computing has recently been recognized as one of the most emerging technology. Many related companies support cloud computing services. In this paper, we present an analysis of current gaps and new trends in cloud computing based on farming industry of japanese.
