Abstract

Adoption of new Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) has been one of the most challenging issues in developing part of the world. Uptake of new ICT innovations involves fulfilling many requirements ranging from technical to human resources. This study investigated factors influencing administrative staffs toward the adoption of cloud computing. Unified Theory of Acceptance and Use of Technology (UTAUT) model serves as an assessment framework to understand administrative staffs’ behavioral intention towards cloud computing. The results of T-test showed that there is no significant influence of gender on effort expectancy, performance expectancy and social influence of administrative staffs towards the adoption of cloud computing. Similarly, results of ANOVA revealed there is no significant influence of age on effort expectancy, performance expectancy and social influence of administrative staffs towards the adoption of cloud computing. On the other hand, the result of Linear regression showed that there is a significant relationship between effort expectancy, performance expectancy, social influence and facilitating conditions on administrative staff’s behavioral intention towards the adoption of cloud computing. Knowledge gained from the study is advantageous to both tertiary administrative staffs and Nigeria ICT policy makers.
