Cloud computing adoption among SMBs following outsourcing trends: survey

Adoption varying by size of the business

By CBR Staff Writer

Adoption of cloud computing services among SMBs is varying by size of the business and is following previously observed pattern related to adoption of outsourcing trends, a new survey by Techaisle revealed.

The survey found that the adoption of cloud services rises and falls as businesses first use these services and then as they grow they attempt to bring solutions in-house and use cloud services again in order to support growth.

The survey also found small businesses with 20-99 employees typically expand their use of cloud services and appear to maintain that level of usage until they hit 250 employees.

At this level, SMBs begin to bring services back in-house as IT investments rise and adoption of Cloud services rises sharply again as SMBs exceed 500 employees.

The report said that SMBs when looked at as a single group, are adopting some core infrastructure applications and applications specific to their industry.
