Abstract: One major obstacle to enterprise adoption of cloud technologies has been the lack of visibility into migration effort and cost. In this paper, we present a methodology, called Cloud Migration Point (CMP), for estimating the size of cloud migration projects, by recasting a well-known software size estimation model called Function Point (FP) into the context of cloud migration. We empirically evaluate our CMP model by performing a cross-validation on six different small-scale cloud migration projects and show that our size estimation model can be used as a reliable predictor for effort estimation. Furthermore, we prove that our CMP model satisfies the fundamental properties of a software size measure.
