SMEs are lagging behind the large organisation to adopt cloud computing. Thus, this paper attempts to explore the main concerns and requirements of cloud computing adoption from small and medium enterprises’ perspectives. This paper targeted the decision makers of SMEs in Malaysia. The outcomes demonstrated that avoiding the capital expenditure and cost and profit margin were the main requirements for cloud adoption. Nonetheless, security, privacy and confidentiality were the major obstacles for the cloud computing deployment among Malaysian SMEs.
