These resources can help you decide whether and how to move part of your business to the cloud

Small businesses are adopting cloud services in increasing numbers. It’s estimated that small and medium-sized businesses will spend $11 billion worldwide on cloud computing this year. And 39 percent of small businesses will be paying for one or more cloud services within three years; that’s an increase of 34 percent. Moving some of your business processes to the cloud makes sense—both operationally and financially—but it’s a decision that requires careful consideration.

In this latest installment of our Technology Roundup series, we provide resources to help you determine if moving to the cloud is right for your company and how to ensure a successful experience.
