Abstract

Due to a demand for computing of huge proportions and cheap in cost, cloud computing is now a favoured model. This type of technology has been utilized by some government organizations to address the demands and requirements of their citizen. However, constraints exist with the use of this model impacting on service provision and use of this technology. This paper will explore the disparate challenges and issues that impacting on the use of cloud computing in Australian local councils. 480 IT staff from 47 local government councils was investigated. The findings will aid authorities to analyse the effectiveness of endorsing cloud computing and develop their understanding of the problematic components this may entail. This research comprises a series of findings on cloud computing with specific focus in this paper on different challenges and issues surrounding the adoption of this technology by Australian local councils.
