Records in the Cloud (RiC): Profile of Cloud Computing Users Rowe, Joy; Pan, Weimei; Barlaoura, Georgia


This poster - presented at the 2013 International Conference on Cloud Security Management ICCSM in Seattle and the 2013 ARMA International Conference in Las Vegas - describes the findings of a survey focusing on the users of cloud services that was conducted as part of the “Records in the Cloud” research project of the University of British Columbia. Cloud computing is an evolving technological concept that offers flexibility and scalability to its users, and the survey investigated why small and medium-sized organizations choose cloud technology, the issues they encounter, and their future expectations. The participants of the survey identified cost and collaboration as their main motives for using cloud computing, while security risks and legal implications were their greatest concerns.
