Abstract

Cloud computing, blockchain, and Internet of Things have gained considerable attention from industry and academia. The focus was on the benefits of using such technologies to do more with less i.e. improve work routines and enhance resource usage, as well as reduce costs. However, when the interest in combining the three technologies surfaced, several challenges appeared due to the conflicting nature of these emerging technologies. These challenges cannot be ignored, as they span technical, organizational, business, and legal aspects of organizations. In this paper, we discuss those challenges through selected literature. We conclude the paper with implications for research.
