Abstract / Description

The following study is an investigation of Information Technology (IT) enablement for a Higher Education Institution (HEI), with focus on the feasibility of Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) using Cloud Computing technology. A Feasibility Study was conducted on the potential IaaS risks and benefits for a HEI such as the computing and library services of a U.K. university. A list of selection criteria and evaluation methods that could be regarded as the basis for a future IaaS Cloud decision model for HEIs is the proposed outcome. The findings of the current investigation contribute to the body of knowledge.
