The objective of this paper is to highlight Cloud Computing projects with the mutual interests of both mainland China and Taiwan, which present the a strong case of Consulting as a Service (CaaS) as an innovative way for generating profits and delivering services for clients. This paper explains the IT and Cloud development in Greater China and presents three projects that Taiwanese have been involved in the design, implementation and research. The first project presents a case for Teradata and Shanghai Stock Exchange (SSE), where Taiwanese collaborators have been closely involved. The second project is about two sandstorm simulations in the Inner Mongolia of mainland China and investigates its impacts to the environment and health of the populations. The third project is the Universe Computing which responds to mainland China's call to develop space programme and to explore the unknown territory. Universe Computing includes simulations for satellite orbiting, galaxy formation and galaxy explosion. The author is an investigator for the second and third project and uses Cloud Computing Adoption Framework (CCAF) to design and deploy Software as a Service (SaaS) and Consulting as a Service (CaaS). Taiwanese research and development outputs have been influential to the IT development in Greater China. This is important to move away any differences and work together to establish more and better research and development results to create a mutual win-win and maintain a high GDP growth.
