Cloud computing adoption in Indonesia

How Widely Has Cloud Computing Been Adopted in Indonesia?


The adoption of cloud computing by enterprises and organizations in Indonesia still lags behind its popularity. This is consistent with studies from Fasilkom UI, BSSN, and ACCI that found that only 67.7% of Indonesia’s public sector had adopted cloud computing.

The adoption of cloud computing in Indonesia is limited by a number of factors, according to research “Current Challenges of Digital Transformation of the Public Sector in Indonesia.” The study, which was published in February 2022, identified a variety of challenges, barriers, and supports of the nation’s growing digital transformation.

Six challenges have been identified in the effort to embrace cloud computing in Indonesia, according to the study, that included 31 respondents from various institutions in Java, Sumatra, Sulawesi, Kalimantan, Bali, and Nusa Tenggara. The six challenges are listed below.

1. Lack of Appropriate and Qualified Human Resources 

The biggest problem is a lack of both quantity and quality human resources in businesses and organizations. The majority of businesses and government agencies have very small IT teams to handle cloud development, operations, and regular maintenance, according to the study’s demographic data.

2. Supplementary Regulations and Policies

Throughout Indonesia, a number of policies and laws are deemed to overlap in a number of industries and organizations, which may lead to improper coordination of the implementation process. Some critical areas, including data management, cloud computing deployment, and data protection and privacy, need specific guidance.

3. Protection of Privacy and Data Security

Issues regarding data security and privacy protection in Indonesia have been raised by cases of data breaches that affected local businesses and government websites. To prevent and evaluate potential hazards, a dependable system architecture and qualified staff are required.

4. IT Infrastructure

In order to automate IT infrastructure management, institutions and businesses rely solely on outdated technologies.

5. Integration of Systems and Services

Integration is challenging since the majority of government agencies’ IT services and systems were designed independently. To deploy an integrated IT solution, additional solutions are required.

6. Corporate Resistance

Change that requires adaptation from all stakeholders is related to organizational resistance. Seniors who are unwilling to learn new technology or processes may reject or criticize the company or agency. Therefore, to reduce opposition, a strong leadership position and training are required. In addition, there are a number of variables that function as obstacles to Indonesia’s growing use of cloud computing.

5 Obstacles of Cloud Adoption in Indonesia

In addition, there are obstacles to Indonesia’s adoption of cloud computing. Here are five obstacles to cloud adoption that need to be addressed.

1. Data Control and Access

One of the obstacles to cloud adoption is the availability of data access and control concerns related to fear and the difficulty of accessing and controlling stored data. In fact, using the cloud simply made it easier to independently access and manage the data you need at any time.

2. Privacy and Security Issues

Since cloud privacy and security are highly important factors, there is still a lack of understanding and awareness of these two issues. When implementing the cloud, this raises concerns.

3. Insufficient Resource Knowledge and Skills

The limited number of IT employees doesn’t quite match the number of users that must be serviced. To solve this issue, socialization and direction are required to increase understanding of the use and application of the cloud.

4. Difficulties in Integrating the Cloud with Other Systems

A smooth and obstacle-free integration between the two systems is required.

5. Lack of Cloud Performance and Durability

The adoption of cloud computing may be inhibited by the reliability and durability of cloud services, especially in some situations, such as during a pandemic.

There are solutions for the challenges associated with adopting cloud computing. Here are seven encouraging factors for businesses and government organizations as a response to the increasing need for cloud adoption.

1. Service Needs-Suitability

To boost the number of adoptions, cloud service providers must offer solutions that meet the requirements of corporations and government organizations. At least nine cloud aspects, such as information security and privacy protection, responsiveness of services and support, ease of integration, reliable performance, simple implementation, scalability, standards and certification, server locations, and test facilities, match the requirements of the industry.

2. Corporate and Institutional Innovation

Companies and organizations with teams that are relatively mature and who keep up with IT innovations are aware of the cloud and have a positive impression of it. Digital innovation is thought to be able to accelerate with cloud usage.

3. Perception of Benefits

Perceptions of the factors that drive innovation and the advantages of the cloud, including cost savings, cost-effectiveness, information security, and privacy protection that organizations need to be aware of.

4. The Quantity of IT Service Users

For businesses and government organizations with numerous users at once, the cloud may be a trusted service provider. Because of its adaptability and efficiency, the cloud has the potential to develop into a dependable infrastructure option as more people utilize public services.

5. Support of Leadership

Leaders have a critical role in promoting the use of cloud computing, particularly at the level of brand provider selection.

6. Policies and Regulations

Regarding regulatory issues, top-down policies have a significant impact on the public sector. When using the cloud, make sure that businesses and government organizations are in compliance with all applicable laws and regulations.

7. Social Influence Between Organizations and Businesses

Utilizing comparison studies between agencies or businesses that are comparable to one another, innovation replication may be used to utilize the cloud. This could mean that cloud service providers focus on early adoption as a benchmark for IT innovation.
