This book gives an overview of a lot of aspects of the implementing and maintaining a cloud computing solution in the workplace of an organization, which is pretty useful. However, the book doesn’t explain all the aspects of implementing the cloud computing solutions along with different approaches that can be taken while implementing the solution (Rittinghouse, 2016).

Survey of Mobile Cloud Computing: Architecture, Applications, and Approaches

All the research articles or papers selected in the previous section focus on various aspects of the cloud computing solutions along with their implementation, management and maintenance. All of these research works focus on providing more information on the development of the cloud computing technologies in the current market and their increasing capabilities in the recent times. These papers in turn allow the readers to have a fair overview regarding the possible approaches to implement the cloud computing solutions along with the various factors to consider to effectively maintain and manage it (Garg, 2013).

The paper ‘An analysis of the cloud computing security problem’ focuses on the security aspect of the cloud computing solutions. This in turn allows the readers to be familiar with the various security issues that might arise with the cloud computing systems and how these issues can be handled in the workplace of an organization. This paper limits itself to the analysis of the security problems that might arise in the cloud computing solutions, but don’t provide all the information regarding the capabilities of these solutions in various real-time scenarios (Hashem, 2015).

The paper ‘A survey of mobile cloud computing: architecture, applications, and approaches’ focuses on the analysis of the mobile computing solutions’ architecture, applications and approaches through an effective survey (Erl, 2013). This in turn allows the readers to have a fair idea of the capabilities of the cloud computing solutions in the mobile platforms. This paper limits itself to the mobile computing solutions and ignores all the other platforms in which the cloud computing solutions can contribute to the real-time requirements and issues (Herbst, 2013).

The paper ‘Mobile cloud computing: A survey’ provides similar information on the mobile cloud computing capabilities as the previous research paper, which focuses on the present capabilities of the mobile computing solutions and their applications in the real-time scenarios. Similar to the last paper, this one also limits itself to the cloud computing solutions on the mobile platforms and provides limited information about the contributions of cloud computing solutions on any other platform (Khan, 2013).

The research paper ‘The rise of “big data” on cloud computing: Review and open research issues’ focuses on the rise of the big data era and the contribution of the cloud computing solutions in it. This paper limits itself on the evolution of the big data era and doesn’t provide information regarding other contributions of the cloud computing solutions (Hashizume, 2013).

Mobile Cloud Computing: A Survey

Whereas the paper ‘Cloud computing: implementation, management, and security’ provides an in-depth knowledge on the implementation, management and security aspects of the cloud computing solutions in the real-time scenarios. This paper provides quite a lot of information regarding all the aspects of the cloud computing solutions (Li, 2013).

“How the effect of the cloud computing solutions of the employees in the workplace affect the implementation of a solution?”

The research focuses on the revelation and analysis of the possible effects of the cloud computing knowledge of the employees in the workplace on the process of implementing a cloud computing solution in the workplace (Oliveira, 2014).

This section provides a research proposal for the research problem identified in the previous section regarding the cloud computing solutions and how the knowledge of the employees affect its implementation in the workplace of an organization.

The research papers identified for the literature review contained a lot of information on the cloud computing solutions that are being used in the current rea-time scenarios along with the capabilities of these cloud computing technologies. The usage cloud computing technologies and solutions along with big data has increased a lot in the past decade. These technologies are shaping the future of the world now and should be analyzed to understand various issues associated with them along with their potential usage in the workplace of an organization (Othman, 2014).

As mentioned earlier the research problem is based on the effects of the employees’ knowledge on cloud computing technologies on the implementation of the cloud computing solutions in the workplace of an organization. The research is based on the problem statement mentioned below (Rahimi, 2014).

“How the effect of the cloud computing solutions of the employees in the workplace affect the implementation of a solution?”

The literatures gathered for the research include various research papers on the cloud computing technologies. These research papers provide a lot of information regarding the current capabilities of the cloud computing technologies along with the possible approaches that can be followed for successful implementation, management and maintenance of the cloud computing solutions in the workplace of an organization. These research papers also focus on the cloud computing technologies and solutions in various platforms including mobile platforms (Rittinghouse, 2016).

The research aims at revealing the positive or negative effects of the employees’ knowledge of the cloud computing technologies on the implementation and management of the cloud computing solution in the workplace of the organization. The research aims at providing efficient guidelines to the managers in the organization to effectively manage the human resources during the implementation and maintenance of the cloud computing solutions in the workplace (Yang, 2013).

The Rise of 'Big Data' on Cloud Computing: Review and Open Research Issues

The research will use surveys and questionnaires in order to analyze the current knowledge of the employees on cloud computing solutions along with the opinion of the managers regarding the factors affecting the implementation and maintenance of the cloud computing solutions in the workplace. So, the survey and questionnaire are the methodologies used for concluding from the research activities (Xiao, 2013).

The knowledge of the human resources on the cloud computing technologies affect the implementation, management and maintenance of the cloud computing solutions to a significant extent (Arora, 2013). As the employees are responsible for working on the cloud computing solution and they should have a clear picture of what the organization is trying to achieve through the cloud computing solution, the research problem is quite significant. Analyzing this problem efficiently allows the managers to have enough information to handle the corresponding situations in the workplace efficiently (Whaiduzzaman, 2014).

The research aims at the analysis of the role that the employees and their knowledge regarding the cloud computing technologies play in the process of implementing, managing and maintaining the cloud computing solutions in the workplace. The expected outcome out of the research is enough information regarding the effects of the employees and their knowledge on the cloud computing solution in the workplace, which allows the managers to develop effective strategies to implement and maintain the cloud computing solutions in the workplace (Wei, 2014).

A CAQDAS software is used to compile the gathered data into formal records arranged in a particular order. The data collected from the interviews with the employees and managers of the organization in terms of the survey questions, can be collected into a huge chuck of data. These responses from the employees and managers can be arranged in terms of their significance to the research objectives (Tao, 2014).

The CAQDAS software can be used to disassemble data efficiently along with using a formal coding method. The process of disassembling data allows the formal compiled data to be informative and sensible. For this we will create the below codes and will assign the corresponding responses from the employees and managers to the appropriate codes (Toosi, 2014).

Initial code (level 1)

Category code (level 2)

Positive employee knowledge

Knowledge about cloud computing

Knowledge about the cloud computing advancements

Positive employee interest

Interest to learn cloud computing

Interest to work in cloud computing

Positive manager knowledge

Knowledge about cloud computing

Knowledge about the cloud computing advancements and usages

Positive manager interest

Interested to use cloud computing

Available cloud computing capabilities among subordinates

Feasible organizational state

Available infrastructure and technical capabilities

The reassembling process can be done using the same CAQDAS software on the basis of the codes or coding method used in the previous process. This sorting of the data on the basis of the coded data allows the data to be more informative and provides more insight into it. This insight can be used to interpret from the collected data, which in turn leads to the conclusion of how the knowledge of the employees on cloud computing technologies can affect the implementation, management and maintenance of a cloud computing solution in the workplace of an organization (Sanaei, 2014).
