This guest editorial highlights the current move by many cloud providers to business and industry-specific cloud. We summarise the latest happenings and provide examples of business and industry-specific needs by considering some case study reports and related research. We introduce four new special section papers, which further elaborate on issues and solutions relevant to business and industry-specific cloud. Finally we summarise the challenges and opportunities ahead for researchers and developers.
