The Impact of Cloud Computing on Decision Support System in Adopting Knowledge Management in Saudi Organizations


Background/Objectives: Due to enormous increase in the volume of the information within and outside of the organizations, traditional business and information models are unable to cater to the needs of the modern business needs. Methods/Findings: In this context, Cloud Computing (CC) is gaining rapid popularity amongst businesses due to its ability to handle technical and organisational facets. Cloud Computing has evolved as a reliable technology, offering enhanced Decision Support Systems (DSS) at a low cost for the organizations. CC has displayed its capability of handling large volumes of data and providing seamless services to the companies. This research explored the impact of CC on DSS and Knowledge Management (KM) on Saudi organizations. The major achievement of this research was to fill the gap in knowledge by researching the impact of integration of CC, DSS and KM for Saudi organizations. The key finding of this research is that there is a significant positive impact of CC on DSS and KM in Saudi organizations. Based on this extensive research, we strongly believe that by taking recommended precautionary measures, security concerns about CC could be overcome resulting in benefits outweighing the risks for Saudi organizations. Application: Based on the literature and qualitative research, we recommend that Saudi organizations should consider migrating from traditional business models to Cloud Computing to stay competitive in this globalised world.
