This gives you the general findings of the Microsoft survey on small midsize business (SMB)– Eduardo Rosini, Microsoft Corporate Vice President highlights how Microsoft fits in:
The survey found that small to midsized businesses are concentrating on reducing operating costs, improving employee productivity and acquiring and retaining customers – No surprise there!
But that might not necessarily mean putting IT projects on hold. Instead, the report said the top technology priorities for SMBs for the coming year include investing in virtualization, IT consolidation, business intelligence, software-as-a-service (SaaS) and support for remote workers.
Eduardo Rosini, Microsoft Corporate Vice-President said. “The study showed that Small Business Specialists are seeing a high demand for SharePoint, Windows servers, MS Office, Windows Mobile and SaaS applications, too — technologies that let you access your data no matter where you’re located.”
