The key benefits of cloud adoption among SMEs are:
Indian companies are increasingly embracing cloud computing for its efficiency in terms of delivering faster results, leveraging existing infrastructure, improving administrative processes, most importantly scalability, and on-demand provisioning of resources.
Although India is still an evolving market in terms of overall cloud adoption, recent trends and surveys show an increased activity in the field. Indian companies are increasingly embracing cloud computing for its efficiency in terms of delivering faster results, leveraging existing infrastructure, improving administrative processes, most importantly scalability, and on-demand provisioning of resources. These attributes make cloud computing a perfect model for running businesses.
The above coupled with low cost; high flexibility; nil down time; storage on demand, as per need; high level of automation, should make cloud as a preferred solution for the SME.
Some other observations, during our interactions with the SME owners are as follows:
We feel that much more needs to be done, by the cloud vendors in terms of explaining the business benefits to the SME. Maybe then can we dream of taking Indian SMEs, there are almost 45 million of them, to Cloud.
We are sure, the SMEs themselves, will be on cloud 9!
