Cloud Computing Technology (CCT) is a new way of leveraging the power of the Internet to provide software and infrastructure solutions to Small and Medium-Sized Businesses (SMBs) around the world. SMBs are rushing to the cloud to save time and money, increase efficiency, and gain a competitive advantage. This article examines potential benefits of CCT as applied to SMBs and explores implementation challenges that can be expected. Furthermore, this study reviews the specific application of CCT to SMBs, highlights developing technologies and trends, and lists some of the cloud-based services for SMBs. Finally this paper proposes a conceptual model for successful implementation of CCT in SMBs.
