Cloud computing has caused a significant paradigm shift that has changed the way data and software applications are accessed. It is the set of disciplines, technologies, and business models used to deliver IT capabilities as an on-demand, scalable, elastic service. Although cloud computing offers a number of opportunities and benefits,, there is a need to understand the factors before making decisions about the adoption of cloud computing. The present study proposes and further delves into the cloud computing model, by exploring the impact of factors of cloud computing (based on TAM model) towards the intention of using cloud computing services in future by professionals. Discriminant Analysis through SPSS software was used for the prediction of usage related to cloud computing services considering four factors of the TAM model as independent variables. Our study shows that security, attitude, and usefulness are important predictors of using cloud computing services while ease of use is not a significant predictor. This study can be of help for the organizations which look forward to adopting cloud computing services and also can provide a base to cloud computing service providers to formulate their strategies accordingly.
