Abstract

Cloud Computing, a new technology, which has been recently developed, has initiated the interest
from various users, organisations and institutions that wish to use its benefits. Cloud Computing provides a cost efficient approach, enables elastic use of Information Technology through scalability and on-demand computer resources as a service. Furthermore, it offers traditional Cloud Computing services (Infrastructure, Platform and Software as a Service). There is also a new concept which
integrates knowledge management and knowledge organisations. Knowledge as a Service (KaaS) is
delivered via knowledge markets within a cloud environment. In the current conference paper the
author presents the KaaS concept together with its advantages and disadvantages. In addition, the
potential KaaS benefits in UK HEIs are also presented. In the paper’s conclusion are highlighted potential benefits and opportunities that KaaS can offer to UK HEIs.
