简介
  • According to severe market competition and a dramatically changing business environment, firms have still prompted to adopt various state-of-the-art information technologies (IT) to improve their business operations (Pan and Jang, 2008; Sultan, 2010).

    In recent years, the term “cloud computing” has been critical in the world of IT.
  • 1006-1023 computing, or the use of internet-based technologies to conduct business, is recognised as an important area for IT innovation and investment (Armbrust et al, 2010; Goscinski and Brock, 2010; Tuncay, 2010).
  • Cloud computing has spread out through the main q Emerald Group Publishing Limited areas related to information systems (IS) and technologies, such as operating systems, DOI 10.1108/02635571111161262 application software, and technological solutions for firms (Armbrust et al, 2010).

  • According to severe market competition and a dramatically changing business environment, firms have still prompted to adopt various state-of-the-art information technologies (IT) to improve their business operations (Pan and Jang, 2008; Sultan, 2010).

    In recent years, the term “cloud computing” has been critical in the world of information technologies
  • Cloud computing is a kind of computing application service that is like Determinants of e-mail, office software, and enterprise resource planning (ERP) and uses ubiquitous resources that can be shared by the business employee or trading partners
  • To promote cloud computing adoption, it is necessary to clarify the factors that explain this adoption, and make a perspicacious analysis to understand if different industries have the same drivers for cloud computing adoption
  • One concern is the contemplation of failure downtime, which will vary by provider, and can happen as server maintenance is executed or as unforeseen outages occur
  • It is necessary to understand the impact of cloud computing adoption in the high-tech industry
  • Firms that would like to adopt cloud computing can start with gradual implantation, slowly increasing the number of processes by developing more internet infrastructure or portable electronic equipment
方法
  • 4.1 Sampling and instrument Data for the study were collected using a questionnaire, and a sample was selected from the top 500 firms in the high-tech industry in Taiwan.
  • 34 survey items for eight constructs in the questionnaire came from prior literature reviews and are modified to fit the context of cloud computing.
  • (1) demographic characteristics as shown in Table I, including company age, number of employees, capital, annual sales, and adoption status of cloud computing services; and (2) evaluation of the eight predictors.
  • No significant differences were detected between the early and late respondent groups, suggesting that there was not a significant response bias
结论
  • The nature of the cloud computing technology that the authors studied was more closely related to core business processes.
  • Relative advantage was observed to have a significantly negative influence on cloud computing adoption in the high-tech industry
  • This finding is inconsistent with previous studies (Tan et al, 2008; To and Ngai, 2006; Wang et al, 2010).
  • Firms can begin by implementing cloud computing services into business processes, such as ERP and CRM
  • These processes are of high value to the firms, and the benefits of adopting SaaS with their trading partners helps them to compete with their bigger rivals.
