Cloud Computing Governance Readiness Assessment: Profiling Turkana University College, Kenya


Jeremiah Osida Onunga

As a tool and as a service, Cloud Computing makes the dream of computing a reality. With its immense strength and benefits, this internet-based ongoing technology that has offered flexibility, capacity, and processing power has realized the service-oriented philosophy and has established a new ecosystem in the computer world. Cloud computing is transforming the Information Technology (IT) industry by allowing businesses to have more cost flexibility by purchasing a service rather than owning their assets. This will allow universities to move their processing and storage to the cloud, making it easier for students to access. Nonetheless, IT decision-makers struggle to evaluate Cloud services because there are no recommendations or a structured form to utilize when deciding which Cloud services to adopt. Cloud computing has emerged as a critical platform for companies looking for new methods to save money while also improving the reliability and value of their information systems. To gain the many benefits of cloud computing, an organization must have a clear cloud governance framework in place, which must be upgraded regularly to accommodate new cloud computing concerns. Many cloud users have extended their IT governance frameworks to their cloud services, yet these frameworks are insufficient in addressing governance concerns in cloud environments. Furthermore, because most consumers lack quantitative tools to assess their cloud computing governance maturity, they may miss opportunities to improve their cloud governance frameworks and achieve a better maturity level. This study evaluated Turkana University College's cloud computing preparedness by analyzing the many opportunities and difficulties that cloud computing poses to the university. The University College employed path analysis to determine the many aspects that contribute to and impact effective cloud governance, as well as the level to which they influence it. In this research, I suggested a model for evaluating Cloud services based on a set of thirty measuring criteria divided into six groups. I demonstrated Google Apps and Microsoft Office 365 to evaluate this proposition. I conducted interviews with clients, vendors, and Cloud service professionals. In addition, I highlighted numerous main elements in cloud computing performance and examined and evaluated cloud performance in various scenarios while taking these factors into account. The results of the path analysis and the established criteria model were utilized to determine the University College's cloud computing maturity level
