Abstract

The cloud computing paradigm represents a shift in the way companies deal with customizable and resourceful platforms to deploy software. It has been receiving increasing attention, partly due to its claimed financial and functional benefits. Cloud computing providers provide organizations with access to computing services without the need for those organizations to own the providing infrastructure. However, migration of legacy information systems to the cloud is not simple. This field is very dynamic and related technologies are rapidly evolving. For instance, Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) may not necessarily be well prepared to deal with issues such as multi-tenancy, elasticity, interoperability, and cloud services. With such issues in view, we searched for different types of tools referenced in the literature to support migration to the cloud and discussed related challenges and advantages of their use by SMEs.
