Businesses are put off of investing in cloud computing because they "don't fully understand it".
That is according to Clodagh Murphy, director of Eclipse, who said that the investment costs also play a major part in decision-making for small firms in the current economic climate.
Research by the Centre for Economics and Business Research, published earlier this month, found that around £148.7 billion will be generated over the next five years by cloud computing across the EU.
It added that that the UK alone will have £25.15 billion in economic benefit through cloud computing by 2015.
Ms Murphy added that cloud computing works as long as firms know who to get the services with.
"Small businesses at the moment are focussed on survival to a certain extent, and growing their own businesses," she said.
"Taking the risk of investing in new technology won't be at the forefront of their minds."
