CRITICAL FACTORS AFFECTING THE UTILIZATION OF CLOUD COMPUTING
This research presets the critical factors that influence the use of cloud computing, in case studies of large and medium-sized enterprises in the metropolitan area of Monterrey. The critical factors are found, according to literature: dependency provider; ignorance of the location, where the information, service knowledge, knowledge of laws, service offered by suppliers, is stored; cost; and information security, describing the research and development, which are significant and demonstrative in its impact.
We used Cronbach's alpha to check the validity of the measurement instrument and used a linear regression method to measure the significance of the variables. We also relied on some measuring instruments, such as Beta, R-squared, Standard Deviation, Anova, Tolerance, and Collinearity index to propose a model.
