Cloud computing is a new computing paradigm which has the potential to speed up Information Technology (IT) adoption among SMEs in developing economies. Its successful implementation can present SMEs with various benefits like reduced IT costs, high scalability and faster time to market. In recent years, many research have been carried in both academia and in businesses to explain the features, benefits and risks of cloud adoption. Literature review reveals that there are existing frameworks available to support cloud migration. However, there is very little literature available to support cloud migration decisions, which covers the whole cloud migration process for SMEs in Tamil Nadu. This paper aims to fill that gap by presenting the SME decision makers (DMs) with a decision support tool. The proposed cloud migration decision support system (CMDSS) will be based on Analytical Hierarchy Process (AHP) and will aid decision makers to make cloud migration decision effectively by suggesting a path from where to start, to how to complete the migration.
