The goal of this work is to understand better how companies use cloud technology to support their software development. The analysis of six IT projects, collected from five companies in St. Peters-burg, was performed. A list of various cloud-based tools, which used by companies to support the software development project activities, was studied. The factors influencing the cloud-based tools adaptation within the software development projects were highlighted. Moreover, based on gathered data, the benefits and challenges of cloud-based tools usage in software development projects were described. Also, the framework of companies’ behaviour and cloud-based tools adoption was pro-posed. The results obtained in this work can be used by companies in order to create a set of cloud-based tools for conducting their software development projects.
