Why Cloud is Perfect for SMBs?

by November 28, 2018 0 comments

5 Reasons that make cloud perfect for SMBs:

1) SMB Growth is Surpassing Enterprise Growth

Small business has grown tremendously over the past year seeing a 32% compound annual growth rate (CAGR). As entrepreneurs realize that businesses are becoming easier to build and associated technologies can be provisioned in a fraction of the time from before, SMB ventures are increasing.

2) Cloud Presents Agility – The Ability to Be Anywhere

SMBs have traditionally been about agility, and Cloud augments this philosophy by allowing workers to be anywhere, anytime. Collaboration technologies, for example, allow workers to call into conference calls from anywhere there is an Internet connection with the ability to collaborate and get work done. Storage software allows for files to be shared and accessed from just about anywhere in the world.

3) Cloud Presents Lower Costs

Lowering costs while maximizing profit is the goal of every business and Cloud does just that for SMBs looking to maximize value without killing the pocketbook. Cloud presents lower costs because technology is no longer owned by the business, but rather by the vendor providing the technology solution. This allows the SMB to pass on the cost of hiring an IT team as well and focus on the business instead. Larger enterprises don’t necessarily have this kind of leverage to work with.

4) Technologies Makes for an Easier Sale

On the other side of Cloud and SMB growth are the integrated technologies that help make more sales possible, like social media platforms which run on the Cloud. Because marketing through social media is also now cheaper than ever, businesses can be more agile while driving traffic the right directions for whatever they are selling.

5) The Way to Work is Evolving

Finally, with Millennials set to become a major demographic in the workplace, the way to work will evolve as many Millennials prefer the power to work remotely and use their own devices for work, both of which require the Cloud to function well. As such perks increase in demand, SMBs are the ablest to respond to such needs and will see Millennials flocking to their job boards to apply for work.
