It is becoming increasingly evident that enterprise computing is in the process of transformation from the traditional on-premise model to a model characterized by the delivery of infrastructure and software services by external providers on a pay-per-use basis. Most of the evidence about cloud computing adoption originates from studies conducted in North America and Western Europe and may not fully apply in countries with less developed enterprise computing infrastructure and lower overall preparedness for cloud computing. In this paper we describe the design of a comparative study of cloud computing adoption in Australian and Czech companies, and discuss the differences in cloud computing adoption patterns. Australian data shows higher use SaaS services in production environments as well as a higher prevalence of cloud-based mission critical applications.
