Has your business taken to the cloud?

VV 3 Feb

More than 70 per cent of small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) believe adopting cloud computing is essential for growth.

This means if you’re an SME and you haven’t already made the move to cloud-based computing, now’s the time to consider a transition to this type of technology, Fresh Business Thinking reports.

As cloud technology can promote flexibility and a reduction in costs, it’s a particularly important step for small businesses. While many larger companies have already noticed the benefits, a lack of education is noted as one of the biggest barriers preventing all SMEs from making the leap.

A survey by Fasthosts on the subject showed that of the 70 per cent who believe cloud computing is essential for growth, 35 per cent say it is an “extremely important” component of their business strategy.

Simon Yeoman, general manager at Fasthosts, believes these figures are positive as it shows the benefits of cloud computing are becoming increasingly recognised: “Helping educate the SME sector is something we take very seriously and we are beginning to see a real move in the market as levels of understanding rise,” he said.
