Abstract

Cloud computing technology utilizing virtual server facility of the Internet services in order to maintain or process the data and applications, will revolutionize the way of how the information systems work in organization due to the simplification of the information technology (IT) management and services by working remotely. The Indonesian Agency of Meteorology, Climatology, and Geophysics (BMKG) as a government institution has the responsibility to disseminate the information of Meteorology, Climatology, Air Quality, and Geophysics through its technical implementation unit (UPT) throughout Indonesian region. An integrated cloud computing technology implementation strategy for MKKuG dissemination information system is needed for BMKG dissemination systems best service, cutting edge technology, and sustainable to its users. This research will use the Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats (SWOT) analysis and the Analytic Network Process (ANP) with Super Decision Software as a tool to determine the need. A cloud computing technology implementation strategy is achieved and presented with four best alternatives, namely the development of a web centre, implementation of virtual hosting concept, procurement of network infrastructure, and ICT development program.

2. Cloud Computing Technology

Cloud computing technology utilizes Internet connection using a virtual server centre in order to maintain or process data and applications [1]. The cloud computing technology will revolutionize the way of how the systems work in organization’s information technology. It is due to the concept of cloud computing that able to significantly reduce the cost of information technology implementation by simplifying the management of IT services by working remotely. Simplifying the management of IT services is available and can be accessed from the Internet and the physical location of the servers which can be reached anywhere, not necessarily on-premise or at each data centre. Nowadays, there are several organizations that provide various types of cloud computing services and physical computing resources located in their data centres.
