Technological Factors Influencing The Adoption Intentions Of Public Cloud Computing By The Private Sector Firms
Cloud computing is an evolving term these days. It describes the advance of many existing IT technologies and
separates application and information resources from the underlying infrastructure. The main objective of this research is to
identify the technological factors influencing the intentions to adopt the public computing by the private sector firms. The
four technological factors influence in the cloud computing adoption is examined in this research by using a proposed
integrated model. The model incorporates aspects of the Technological factors such as Complexity, Compatibility, Security
Concerns and Trialability. In order to test influencing technological factors a study was done and one hundred and twenty
two valid responses were received from IT decision makers from forty firms in different industries. The results revealed that
the Compatibility and Trialability are the main influential factors in the adoption intentions of public cloud computing.
Future research could be built on this study by developing different model for each industry because each industry has
unique characteristics that can influence the adoption of the technological innovations.
