Table 7 Results of hypotheses testing

From: An exploration of the determinants for decision to migrate existing resources to cloud computing using an integrated TOE-DOI model

No Hypotheses Coefficient Result
H1 (+) Organisations that perceive high relative advantages of cloud computing are more likely to migrate 0.18 Supported (p < 0.05)
H2 (−) Perceiving cloud computing as a complex technology will negatively affect the decision to migrate −0.14 Supported (p < 0.05)
H3 (+) Ease of testing in the cloud will positively influence the decision to migrate 0.03 Not supported
H4 (−) High perception of risks will negatively influence the decision to migrate −0.14 Supported (p < 0.05)
H5 (−) The perception that cloud computing is less compatible with existing systems will negatively affect the decision to migrate −0.16 Supported (p < 0.05)
H6 (−) High volumes of data are less likely to be migrated −0.03 Not Supported
H7 (+) Organisations readiness will positively influence the decision to migrate to the cloud −0.13 Supported (p < 0.05)
H8 (−) The impact of migration on the internal social network will negatively influence the decision to migrate −0.13 Supported (p < 0.05)
H9 (+) The impact of migration on external social network will positively influence the decision to migrate 0.05 Not Supported
H10 (+) Upper management support is positively related to the decision to migrate 0.15 Supported (p < 0.05)
H11 (−) The process of selecting a cloud provider is difficult which negatively influences the decision to migrate −0.14 Supported (p < 0.05)
H12 (−) Concerns about legal implication are negatively related to the decision to migrate −0.19 Supported (p < 0.05)
H13 (−) Difficulties of information gathering will negatively influence the decision to migrate −0.8 Supported (p < 0.05)
