The constant evolution of computing has helped businesses to automate and innovate, providing them a competitive advantage in the global marketplace. Nevertheless, with the coming of the Cloud, organizations are once again at the crossroad of technology. Early adoption of the Cloud can provide organizations with an opportunity to transform their business models and gain a competitive edge. While cost reduction is one of the benefits, several other benefits accrue to organizations. This paper is aimed at exploring the need for adoption of Cloud computing in the electronic and print clusters in Bangalore and Mysore. To this end, we explore the factors that drive SME clusters to employ cloud computing while gaining additional insights by examining barriers to cloud computing. This study employs regression methodology to determine the significance of each identified factor with respect to adaptability of cloud computing among the SME clusters, thereby determining which of the factors can make an impact on the adaptability. The study conducted among two SME clusters in Bangalore and Mysore revealed that none of the factors had a significant impact on the adaptability, rendering the result not in line with potential suppositions.
