  • Abstract

    Although Cloud Computing Technologies “CCT” and their benefits have been recognized for decades, there are still fears at Egyptian Governmental Organizations “EGO” to migrate to them. The paper addresses developing & enhancing IT capabilities & business model at EGOs by adopting CCT from a national planning viewpoint. It starts by explaining Cloud Computing “CC” definition, concept, characteristics, types, models, benefits and challenges. Then introduces survey results as a guide model for EGO, as done in a previous study supervised by the author, surveying their awareness of CCT, standards, and factors impacting the migration. It contributed with a “Proposed Generic Cloud Computing Architectural Framework for EGO” to be adopted nationally. It concludes that adopting CCT has a positive impact on IT from a financial & Performance viewpoints that raise its IT capabilities.
