Abstract

The core value of Cloud Computing is in the management of information. Universities require elements that improve, streamline and safeguard information and have it available whenever it is needed. The adoption of cloud computing in education has the potential to improve knowledge management. For this reason, the education sector is the one that has adopted cloud computing services the most, followed by the telecommunications area, although it is limited in universities in developing countries due to their costs. Decisions on their adoption should be made after serious consideration of relevant industry factors. The factors affecting the adoption of cloud computing cut across technology, management, and environmental contexts. And finally, the key issues to consider when adopting cloud computing relate to trust and IT security.
