Why Cloud is an IT reality for SMBs

Why Cloud is an IT reality for SMBs

Techaisle White Papers are free to download and freely used.

Techaisle’s global SMB study shows that Cloud is on the minds of nearly all SMBs and is viewed as an IT priority by 96 percent of US SMBs and 86 percent of SMBs worldwide. Cloud is no longer a trend that is discrete from mainstream IT. Cloud is not only a near-universal IT priority but it is also a current IT reality.

In the Techaisle survey when SMBs were asked to indicate the areas of their operations where cloud has been or will be applied, nearly two-third reported that they are using/planning to use cloud for IT infrastructure, and over half stated that cloud will be deployed to support non-core processes and applications.

But Techaisle SMB also survey finds that use of cloud is expanding even into business-critical applications. In fact, 46 percent of SMBs stated that they are implementing cloud for some of their core business processes that have direct impact on business growth.

Coverage includes:

  • SMBs are moving to Cloud
  • Cloud is essential to SMB technology infrastructure
  • Cloud address core business issues
  • Cloud helps SMBs reduce bottom line & grow topline
  • Higher performing SMBs adopting cloud at a faster pace
  • There is no merit in being a late cloud adopter
