With the possible application scenarios of AI in companies being as diverse as imaginable, it creates value in every industrial sector where large amounts of data accumulate. However, companies face numerous considerable barriers adopting AI, such as the high cost of computing power or the limited expertise in this domain. Combining the benefits of a cloud environment with the application scenarios of AI has created a powerful new way to adopt AI provided by a third-party provider as a cloud service – so called AI as a Service (AIaaS). However, a holistic view of the determinant factors motivating companies to adopt AI in the form of AIaaS is virtually absent in the literature.
