Abstract: Information and communication technologies (ICT) are changing the ways of imparting education, providing learning opportunities and enhancing institutional performance. Cloud computing (CC) helps in lightening the burden of massive technology investments required for improving performance. However, CC adoption in higher educational institutes in India is still in nascent phase. Therefore, the objective is to identify and rank the factors enabling CC adoption in the context. Fuzzy analytic hierarchy process (FAHP) has been applied. Time to cater IT demand, security and relative advantage are found as the most critical factors. The findings will aid other institutes in adoption decision and gain competitive advantage.
