Small and medium businesses can play a significant role in the development and growth of the economy of any country and the global economy. CTO Vision brought this to us in their article, “Cloud computing for small businesses: Five reasons why it works.

To stay alive and relevant in an increasingly interconnected and competitive global market, small and medium business need to adapt to the latest technologies. Those that fail to do so will struggle and possibly even have to close their doors.

For small and midsize businesses the benefits of cloud computing are endless. Cloud computing saves businesses time and money by boosting productivity, improving collaboration and promoting innovation. Businesses use cloud computing to access information anywhere with any compatible device.

Typically, if a small business plans to increase its operations, it will have to procure additional IT hardware to support the new staff. In the event of a downsizing, all the capital expenditures incurred to procure the additional hardware will be rendered fruitless. Scalability is another benefit for small and medium businesses when it comes to cloud computing.
