Decision-making model to evaluate Cloud Computing Service Model using Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP) & Benefits, Costs, Opportunities, And Risks(BCOR) Analysis


Nitin Chawla* and Deepak Kumar  


Most organizations are analyzing the adoption of Cloud Computing due to the increased demands of Information Technology to support business needs in the organization. Multiple services models are emerging in the cloud computing and these have already been discussed in multiple existing literatures. Organization should have the scientific way to choose and identify the right service model to fulfill its IT and business needs. This research paper focuses on proposing decision model with the help of Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP) and benefit-cost-opportunity-risk (BCOR) analysis. It suggests a range of key attributes which act as building blocks of the model based on Analytic Hierarchy Process(AHP). The model will provide the benefits, cost, opportunity and risks of cloud computing services, particularly for the three service models of cloud computing. The results of this study will be useful for organizations to adopt cloud computing service model.
