Cloud computing poses both opportunities and challenges for companies and IT professionals. Some of these are technical challenges that can be solved over time, while others are related to uncertainties arising from the commitment to a recent innovation. The objective of this research is to identify some of the uncertainties that IT professionals may have and can discourage them from adopting cloud computing. In fact, this paper is focused on predicting the perceived easy-of-use of cloud business services. For that purpose, we use Choquet Fuzzy Integral and Support Vector Machines.
