Cloud Computing is being used widely all over the world by many IT companies as it provides various benefits to the users like cost saving and ease of use. However, with the growing demands of users for computing services, cloud providers are encouraged to deploy large datacenters which consume very high amount of energy and also contribute to the increase in carbon dioxide emission in the environment. Therefore, we require to develop techniques which will help to get more environment friendly computing i.e. Green Cloud Computing. Cloud computing is an increasingly popular paradigm for accessing computing resources. This paper discusses some of the research challenges for cloud computing from an enterprise or organizational perspective, and puts them in context by reviewing the existing body of literature in cloud computing. Various research challenges relating to the following topics are discussed: the organizational changes brought about by cloud computing; the economic and organizational implications of its utility billing model; the security, legal and privacy issues that cloud computing raises. It is important to highlight these research challenges because cloud computing is not simply about a technological improvement of data centers but a fundamental change in how IT is provisioned and used. This type of research has the potential to influence wider adoption of cloud computing in enterprise, and in the consumer market too
