Organizations have shown a significant interest in the adoption of cloud technology-enabled operating environment. While many organizations are interested in adopting cloud technology-enabled operating environment suitable to their local circumstances, there is little guidance available on how to do so. We propose the iterative development and evaluation of a context-aware cloud adaptation (CACA) framework construct, based on agile philosophy and Actor-Network-Theory, by applying a design science research approach. This framework, whilst still under development, can be useful in assisting organizations to develop self awareness of their cloud adoption readiness, while at the same time being able to iteratively self assess, adopt and improve an appropriate cloud technology-enabled operating environment for their business by obtaining, modeling, processing and managing contextual information for their economic and competitive advantage. This seminar presents our ongoing research in this emerging area of cloud technology-enabled business transformation and highlights how businesses can best deal with the challenge of context-aware cloud assessment, adoption and improvement.
