In today's IT world combination of AD (Agile Development) and CC (Cloud Computing) is a good recipe for the user needs fulfillment in efficient manners. This combination brings superiority for both worlds, Agile and Cloud. CC opportunities are optimized by AD processes for iterative software releases and getting more frequent user feedback while reducing cost. This paper analyzes the AM (Agile Methodology) processes and its benefits, issues with CC. ACD (Agile Cloud Development) approach helps a lot in overwhelming the challenges of both practices, encourages higher degree of innovation, and allows finding discovery and validation in requirements.
