Factors affecting cloud adoption and their interrelations


Garg, Radhika; Stiller, Burkhard (2015). Factors affecting cloud adoption and their interrelations. In: 5th International Conference on Cloud Computing and Services Science, Lisbon, Portugal, 20 May 2015 - 22 May 2015, 87-94.

Abstract

Cloud Computing has emerged as a paradigm that relies on sharing resources over the network and, therefore, potentially has cost advantages in terms of lower variable and capital cost. However, the adoption of cloud-based technology for a given IT (Information Technology) setting is a complex decision as it is influenced by multiple interdependent factors. To successfully adopt cloud-based services and evaluate their consequential impact, relevant factors, which denote the performance of such services, have to be identified. This paper, therefore, analyzes and identifies relevant technical, economical, and organizational factors. This is performed as exploratory research consisting of performing (a) a literature review and (b) multiple case-studies with 17 organizations, who have adopted or plan to adopt cloud-based services. Also, as these factors are not mutually exclusive, this paper discusses interrelations of these factors and its complexity.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
