Over the past few decades, organizations have increasingly showcased a tendency to switch to digital solutions to make their operations more effective. Among them, Cloud computing has been considered as one of the best and easiest choices, especially for manufacturing companies with multiple geo-locations. This article has explored all the available variables before moving on to applying the modern IS technology such as cloud
computing, using a qualitative model of study. The findings of this study is an outcome of the
semi-structured interviews with the officials of an individual organization. Through this study,
we have discovered that the key factors playing a major role in cloud services adoption are: provider activities and external computing support, top management support, competitive benefit, financial commitments, usability, capacity, previous expertise, trialability and
complexity. The proposed adoption framework classifies the adoption pathway into three sections. Firstly, it outlined the selection of the cloud delivery model. Secondly, the framework addressing the processes in the preparation stage along with its responsible authority. Finally, it categorizes the implementation stage processes and its authority.
