This paper proposes a model that provides a structure to aid the decision making process for the migration of organisations’ IT resources to cloud-based services. It includes consideration of business intelligence as well as design phases which have been neglected by existing decision support systems. Six main steps and the tasks within the model are identified, and their interaction with a proposed knowledge base is discussed. These provide a structure that systematically guides decision makers through the cloud migration process. Finally further research is discussed, including the development of a knowledge-based decision support system which will be undertaken by the authors.
