Cloud computing can probably make the biggest impact in the SMB segment. Why? Because traditionally, these businesses haven’t been able to afford the same services and resources that large companies use, limiting their capabilities. It was often impossible to be even remotely competitive with a large organization, but luckily that has changed. Now, thanks to the cloud, businesses of all sizes can take advantage of world-class solutions, accessing infrastructure and software that was previously out of reach.
Rather than focusing on balancing a budget, small businesses can focus on business strategy and development.
SMBs play a huge role in the growth of the cloud market. One third of SMB IT budgets are already allocated to cloud and managed services, and according to Emergent Research, 78% of small businesses will be fully adapted to the cloud by 2020.
