LSE research paper on Cloud Computing selected as the 2014 Emerald Outstanding Paper for Strategic Outsourcing journal|

Dr Edgar Whitley|’s paper with Professor Leslie Willcocks| and Dr Will Venters| “Cloud Sourcing and Innovation: Slow Train Coming? A Composite Research Study” has been selected as the 2014 Emerald Outstanding Paper winner for Strategic Outsourcing|.

Although cloud computing has been heralded as driving the innovation agenda, there is growing evidence that cloud computing is actually a “slow train coming”. The paper draws on a composite research base including two detailed surveys and interviews with 56 participants in the cloud supply chain undertaken between 2010 and 2013 to understand the factors that drive and inhibit the adoption of cloud computing. The paper finds that while some features of cloud computing will hasten the adoption of cloud and its use for innovative purposes by the enterprise, there are also clear challenges that need to be addressed before cloud can be adopted successfully. Interestingly, the analysis highlights that many of these challenges arise from the technological nature of cloud computing itself.
