Alkhansa A. Shakeabubakor, Elankovan Sundararajan, and Abdul Razak Hamdan
Abstract— One of the fundamental issues facing research universities is to raise productivity of their research community. A thorough study of the literature reveals that there are many articles on productivity, however, there are only a small number of them are relate to productivity issues affecting researchers in universities. In our work, we aim to use cloud computing services as a tool to help improve productivity of research activities. This is accomplished by identifying and addressing the main factors that influence improvement in productivity and identified researchers’ needs from cloud computing services and applications. To obtain the needs and the factors affecting the productivity of university researchers, we conducted interviews with postgraduate students to determine them. In this paper, we report our findings on the important needs of researchers from cloud services for productivity improvement and the factors that have a negative influence on productivity in addition to suggestion resolving study problem.

Index Terms— Cloud computing services, researchers, improve productivity.
