The Road to Embracing Cloud for SMBs



TL;DR

What are the major barriers to SMB cloud adoption?

Digital Ocean conducted a survey with 2,400 IT decision-makers in 48 countries. Among the respondents who reported increased cloud usage with the COVID-enforced digital acceleration, more than 80% of traditional and tech SMBs stated that their cloud usage continued to increase significantly in the following year. For traditional SMBs, keeping up with the technology curve is still one of their notable challenges. The results also reveal the need for simplicity for SMBs.

How can cloud reduce maintenance and development costs for SMBs?

One of the most compelling benefits of the cloud is the favorable financial savings by not investing in and maintaining legacy infrastructure, such as hardware and networking equipment, data servers, and other typical physical IT needs. The cloud is consumed as a service, for instance, server-intensive apps like email services. Instead of having on-prem email servers, SMBs can leverage cloud email services with its associated benefits. A cloud service lets you choose a subscription model that fits your business needs, with the costs being proportional to the services and storage space used. Consequently, SMBs can develop affordable solutions without having large IT teams to build and deploy apps or deal with the logistics and security of the applications.

How can cloud fasten deployment and TTM?

Cloud services simplify the application development lifecycle and present faster TTMs. With built-in scalability, resiliency, API, database-as-a-service, provisioning, deployment, and monitoring capabilities, software engineers can focus on core functionality instead of on other critical aspects of product development that require significant time and effort.
