The COVID-19 pandemic has shown companies that their on-premise infrastructures often reach their limitswith a large number of remote accesses. The transition to cloud-based solutions could represent a moreefficient alternative. However, many German companies, especially small and medium-sized enterprises(SME), are still hesitant to take this big step of transferring applications to the cloud. For this reason, thispaper examines the question of whether existing migration approaches in the analysis phase fit the specificrequirements of SMEs. Using a literature review methodology, we first identify and analyze determinantfactors for cloud adoption in SMEs. On this basis, we analyze existing methods in the analysis phase formigrations from on-premise software to cloud solutions. We investigate whether these factors are consideredin the analysis phase of the approaches and conclude their suitability for SMEs. Of the migration approacheswe examined, none included all the factors we identified as relevant to SMEs. Fewer have considered allfactors fully and in detail. We present the results of the literature search process in tabular form and concludethis paper with a discussion and synthesis of the literature as well as an outlook on further research fields.
