Abstract—In this paper, we present a software project management of agile development in cloud computing environments, called as TOAST, which is constructed based on the MOAT model. MOAT is a two-layer model of software project management using agile methodology, which is especially designed for managing software projects in cloud computing environments. In MOAT, the primary operations of agile software development are categorized into two layers; namely, the project layer and the task layer. With MOAT, the progress status of an agile software development project is represented easily and clearly. TOAST implements all the MOAT operations using a client/server architecture, of which the TOAST client is deployed as an Android app and the TOAST server is designed to provide services in cloud computing environments. Since there is not many, if any, software management tools of agile development available, TOAST is considered as an explorative tool especially for the software industry that aims at cloud computing environments as the primary computing platform.

Index Terms—Agile software development, cloud computing environment, software development methodology, software project management.
