With the recent emergence of cloud computing, the number of cloud service providers is constantly increasing and consumers' needs are becoming more sophisticated. This situation leads to an evident need for methods which enable providers to correctly elicit requirements coming from very heterogeneous consumers. Moreover, consumers demand ways to find the cloud services which best meet their needs. We propose to address the issues identified by creating the StakeCloud community platform, capable of working as a cloud resources marketplace. It will allow users to input their resource needs and provide them with matching cloud services. Additionally, in case these are not met, they can be communicated as new requirements to cloud providers. Such a contribution will improve the requirements communication and resource identification in cloud systems, bridging the gap between consumers and providers.
