In general, ROI for the cloud should follow the pattern for calculating ROI for other projects in your business environment.

The real issue is that too many organizations, especially smaller ones, do not have anything formal for evaluating ROI and basing decisions upon that evaluation.

The OpenGroup has a very elaborated whitepaper about this topic, i would call that an "official pattern":
