Assimilation of the Cloud: Benefits and Challenges to Acceptance, Routinization and Infusion of Cloud Computing

This paper goes beyond a binary view of adoption and instead examines the more complex nature of cloud computing assimilation. It examines acceptance, the extent to which an organization's members are committed to the adoption, routinization, the extent to which the use of cloud becomes a normal activity, and infusion, the extent to which more features of the cloud are used than originally planned, the extent to which use is sophisticated, and the extent to which use is emergent. Drawing on three case studies, this paper will contribute to the existing cloud technologies literature that does not address the complex and multi-faceted nature of adoption.
