Enterprise Cloud Computing (ECC) Benefits from ECC for SMEs:
Lower IT-related cost: eliminating costs of establishing and maintenance of IT infrastructure
Speed: self-service access to an available pool of shared and scalable computing resources
Better IT support: new applications can be approved and deployed quickly
Agility Competitive advantage

Enterprise Cloud Computing (ECC) Challenges to ECC for SMEs Trust/Security: data privacy and
trust issues Vendor lock-in Lack of standards: related to
data privacy and SLA as any new computing technology
Lack of control: in terms of SMEs don’t have skills to control their data in the cloud
Integration: with in-house systems
Scepticism: SMEs might be reluctant to adopt cloud services because they don’t have the financial resources and skills needed for secure cloud

ECC Adoption Model for SMEs
Enterprise Cloud Computing (ECC)
Information Required Perform a literature review of cloud
computing and cloud application interoperability to assess the current status of interoperability research and inform the choice of frameworks for the experimentation part of this research
Design and develop a reference application software
Adapt the reference application to use the chosen frameworks
Assess the maturity of the frameworks by reviewing the success of the experimentation and the effort involved
Summarise the research, draw conclusions and recommend areas of future research
Research Objective/Question Objection: To identify the trust issues that affect SMEs’
choice to adopt cloud services as well as the major concerns of data security risks.
Question: What are the cloud-specific security risks and
priority associated with cloud computing?
What are the data protections and privacy concerns for the SMEs data in the cloud?
How data security affects SMEs choice to adopt cloud services?
What are the data security policies offered in the cloud? How effective they are? And are they enough to persuade SMEs to move to the cloud?
Information Methodology & Analysis Methodology: Qualitative: Literature review Case study Design research Quantitative: Measuring security-
cost related issues (if a representative sample is available)
Analysis: Compare with Questionnaire
results Link between Interviews and Lit
Review Compare Results from Interviews
Conclusion and Recommendation ECC is having a transformative
impact and changing the way SMEs operate, internally and with partners and customers
ECC is helping SMEs reach strategic goals for growth and innovation
Substantial investment over the next few years will further solidify cloud’s central role
success involves much more than smart IT planning, there also must be some serious thinking about the rest of the business
ECC have to develop cloud strategic for SMEs
