Cloud Solutions A Top Priority For UK SMEs

Small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in the UK are significantly invested in cloud solutions, a new report has suggested. 

Exact's 2015 SME Cloud Barometer, which surveyed 3,000 SMEs across Europe and the US, revealed 27 per cent of British companies have three or more different cloud products in place. 

The report described these organisations as 'heavy users', and the UK has the highest percentage of these SMEs in Europe, according to ITProPortal. Only the US registered more, with 29 per cent. 

In comparison, one-quarter of SMEs in the Netherlands use three or more cloud solutions, while 24 per cent of businesses in Belgium and France said the same. Germany ranked last with 10 per cent. 

"Lowering IT costs, security and enhancing more productivity and efficiency for the end-user are the top three reasons small manufacturers choose online business software," the report stated. 

Last year, an Oxford Economics study showed more than half of UK businesses believed cloud would be central to their innovation strategy by 2016. Early adopters of the technology were also found to have higher profit margins than competitors. 

This trend was reinforced in the 2015 SME Cloud Barometer, with heavy users found to enjoy more revenues and more than double the profit levels of other survey respondents. 

ITProPortal noted that cost savings are the most important factor for UK SMEs investing in the cloud - 32 per cent of businesses listed this as their top priority. Better security and easier access to information were also considered key benefits.
