As new technology becomes dynamically changing, human beings should struggle for this change either to accept or reject. Cloud computing is the consumption of information and communications technology (ICT) over the internet from the pooled resource center. It uses the concept “everything a service” and very fast-emerging technology for web-based service migration. Business organizations need to use this technology in order to survive and become competent in the market. The emerging technologies always come up with opportunities and challenges that despite the benefits. The focus of most researchers is technical aspects of cloud service framework that not leads to an adequate solution for adaptation. Therefore, an adaptation of the cloud computing service framework requires a critical investigation of challenges and related issues. The purpose of this research is to analysis the most challenging factors to adapt cloud computing services framework in Ethiopia, and propose an appropriate framework and evaluate it. The mixed research methods were used (Qualitative and Quantitative), interview used to gather qualitative, questionnaire and observation used for quantized data. The research methodologies used in this research, are a Literature review, current state analysis, conducting a survey, Framework development, and Evaluation. The analysis result indicates that complexity, compatibility, Top management support, professional fit or capacity, innovative ideas, and relativeness advantages are positive challenges (factors). However, infrastructure, Governmental policy, Top management aware of cloud benefits, security issues and absence of competitors are negative factors for adapting cloud computing service framework. Based on the research finding, adopting a cloud computing service adaptation framework by considering local factors is very important. In addition, it increases performance by decreasing response time and Data Center average processing time at the same cost. Suggestion and recommendation as bases for future researchers further investigation stated in detail.
