Cyprian Clement Abur


Abstract

The cloud computing model enables dynamics on-demand computing and promotes sustainable development for Higher Institutions in Nigeria. However, it requires careful and full understanding of the technology, opportunities and challenges that may be encountered. It reviews literature, discusses and explores different aspects of cloud computing as part of a continuous research in the area of dynamic and interactive higher institutions. The study used both primary and secondary sources of data. One hundred and twenty questionnaires were distributed to a state in each of the six geo-political zones and FCT Abuja, thus, making a total of 840 questionnaires distributed. The study used simple percentage, pie chart, chart, tables and chi-square to analyze data collected. The chi-square result shows that X2 obs. 342.1 is greater than the value of X2 Crit. 26.296 at 0.05 significant levels. Therefore, the null hypothesis was rejected. The study concludes that cloud computing model dynamics have significant impact on higher institutions for sustainable development in Nigeria. The study recommended cloud service providers should be available in Higher Institutions to encourage adoption of cloud computing for sustainable development in Nigeria.
