Cloud computing is a set of services that provide infrastructure resources using internet media and data storage on a third party server. SMEs are said to be the lifeblood of economy in many country in the world. They are known to be the silent drivers of a nation’s economy. Cloud computing is new for SMEs in Malaysia especially in Melaka. In Europe and Northern America, this cloud computing had been implement by their SMEs almost more than a decade. Most of the Melaka SMEs have adopted the traditional systems and have incurred a heavy cost while implementing these systems before. In order to encouraging SMEs implement this cloud computing, there are several concerns and issues that had been faced. This paper will presents study to explore the perception of cloud computing from SMEs in Melaka. A study was conducted to top management and IT department from about 30 SMEs in Melaka. This study used a questionnaire that was adapted from the literature to examine barrier factor (security issues, lack of resources, role of leader, external factor, and adaptability), and SMEs perception on cloud computing using data from the survey to employees in SMEs in Melaka (N = 108). The analysis of the data using reliability test, correlation coefficient and multiple regressions revealed that the barrier factor has a significant influence on SMEs perception on adoption of cloud computing. All requirements, and concerns surrounding the adoption of cloud computing will be discussed deeply in this study. Finally, the paper concludes with some recommendation for further research areas in the field of Cloud Computing in SMEs.
