The use of cloud services can generate tremendous benefits for companies, especially for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). When searching for a cloud service the specification of the required functions is an important aspect for finding appropriate services. SMEs which may not have access to the knowledge of an information technology (IT) expert can have difficulties in formulating their functional requirements and current cloud service search engines do not provide comfortable assistance for the specification of functional requirements like service features. The contribution of this paper is a technique for the automated identification of service features for supporting cloud service search. The technique uses an ontology to perform an analysis of the functions provided by cloud services or onpremise software which is currently used by the SMEs. The technique was implemented and evaluated in the context of the crafts domain.
