Abstract: Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) is a new information and communications technology (ICT) that offers dynamically scalable reconfigurable services to clients on demand via the internet. It is heralded as one of the most significant ICT advances that can facilitate business value creation and innovation. There is paucity of research concerning the perceived risks that can affect SaaS adoption intentions of higher education organisations (HEOs). In attempts to contribute to the existing body of knowledge, this study draws on qualitative evidence to explore perceived SaaS risks at HEOs. It equips HEO managers and policy makers with an integrative risk management framework for SaaS adoption.
