SMEs should get their head in the cloud


If you’re a small or medium-sized enterprise (SME) looking to make savings, adopting cloud technology is one of the best ways to go about it.


However, some entrepreneurs are stubborn old mules and refuse to get with the programme and move with the technological  times.


But, a Microsoft commissioned comScore study has shown that 68 per cent of companies have made instant savings thanks to cloud technology. On top of this, 58 per cent and 49 per cent respectively said they now use fewer internal resources and spend less time managing IT overall.


So, just imagine what you can do with this extra time and money – effectively work on growing your business is just one example.


And for those of you who are worried about security breaches or reliability, then take comfort in the fact that these issues can be easily overcome with a little careful thought. Setting out a list of guidelines for employees, for example, could ensure that company data isn’t compromised.
