Cloud computing is the delivery of computer resources over a network through web browsers, while the actual physical location and organization of the equipment hosting these resources are hidden from the users. Some of the IT organizations are undergoing severe budgetary constraints depends on clouds for the infrastructure and services. The major attributes of cloud computing are multitenency, massive scalability, elasticity, pay as you use and self provisioning of resources of the cloud. Cloud computing strategy is subjected to many inhibitors. For finding the interrelationship among inhibitors ISM (interpretive structural modeling) is used which a well is proved technology for finding the interrelationship among elements. An innovative version of interpretive structural model is known as Total Interpretive Structural Model (TISM). In Total Interpretive Structural Modeling (TISM), influence/enhancement of inhibitors and their interrelationship is considered. Total interpretive structural model consists of the following steps. They are identification of elements, pair-wise comparison, level partition, interaction formation, diagraph representation and diagrammatic representation of total interpretive structural model. The methodology of TISM is used to delineate the hierarchical relationship of inhibitors of cloud computing.
