In this paper we describe an approach to graphicallyexternalize the cloud potential of a company, considering itsarchitectural description. For this purpose it is shown howcurrent architectural description can be extended, in terms ofknowledge and graphical representation. The goal is to focus onthe most important features and aspects to consider during theevaluation of shifting into a cloud environment. Even if eachcompany has different strategies and approaches to its businessactivities, there are some domains related to the shift in a cloudenvironment that should be considered in any case. This papershows how these main areas can be taken into account in order toextend the architectural representation of a company and expressits cloud readiness.
