The exigency of data analysis has been accelerating for routine operations in organizations. Every organization gathers a large amount of heterogeneous data every day. Subsequently, they develop their current and future strategies based on the analysis of the collected data. However, most small and medium organizations have been dealing with two major issues in the field of data analysis: requirements of several expensive analysis tools and IT infrastructure, and IT skills of their staff. One of the most effective solutions for them would be the cost-effective and on-demand IT infrastructure and software resources in the cloud. Google Cloud System is one of the biggest and complex cloud systems, which offers a variety of services including free services such as Google Drive. This paper presents a most economical and effortless approach for making a system of systems (SoS) based on Google Cloud System and SAML/OpenID Connect. In which, Google Drive can be securely connected to the organizational system using the popular SAML/OpenID Connect framework; subsequently, data analysis can be performed using the complete set of Google Drive tools: Google Sheets, Google Refine, Google Fusion Tables, Google Charts and Google Maps. This system of systems is not only the cost-effective and user-friendly solution but can be used by anyone, anytime, anywhere. The experimental simulation also demonstrates the effortlessness of the proposed data analysis approach using these Google Drive tools.
