Cloud Adoption Strategy for The Indian School Education System
Now-a-days, cloud computing technology is considered pivotal for the educational system. It provides
infrastructural enhancement without ownership, to mitigate emerging needs of students, teachers and administrators.
However, in order to embrace this emerging technology, the challenges and uncertainties about its expected economic value,
successful transition from planning to design and implementation and its overall impact on the overall educational system
has left Indian educational institutions sceptical to adopt this technology. No doubt, some studies have been undertaken to
frame cloud computing strategies in different countries. But, adoption of cloud computing strategies in India needs to tailor
out unique cloud computing solutions, keeping in view the present and future needs. Therefore, given the unique
requirements of the Indian school education system, this research undertakes identifies various challenges, drivers and
barriers related to the adoption and transition towards cloud and offers efficient cloud computing adoption strategy with
services and solution offerings.
