Abstract:This research determines which factors that contribute to, and inhibit the adoption of cloud computing. This becomes increasingly interesting after Snowden’s revelations about digital espionage. This paper starts with a systematic literature research to find out what already has been tested. This information is complemented with results from interviews conducted amongst experts in the field. The constructs and their indicators are fit into a TOE-framework which is tested via a survey amongst IT-managers in The Netherlands. The technology is the same as on-premise technology, but more flexible. The organization, however, often looks different at this, therefore, the organizational context is the most important determinant of cloud adoption. Furthermore it is shown that the definition on Cloud computing is ambiguous.
