Cloud Adoption Among SMBs Rising, Microsoft Study Finds
There is no shortage of cloud-related news and discussion in the Microsoft Dynamics ecosystem. And new research from Microsoft indicates that more small and mid-size business (SMBs) will pay for cloud services over the next five years.
The research conducted by Edge Strategies includes responses from IT decision makers or influencers at more than 3,000 SMBs in 13 countries.
According to the research, 59% of SMBs currently using cloud services report that technology has made them more productive, compared with just 30% of SMBs not yet using non-cloud/on-premise technology. There is no indication in the report that cloud technology was the causal factor in improved productivity, although a major cloud provider might not dissuade such an assumption.
