ITBusinessEdge: CompTIA Says SMBs Relying More On New Technology To Gain Edge
CompTIA’s Second Annual SMB Technology Adoption Trends report shows that a perhaps surprising number of companies with 10 to 499 employees are interested in joining leading-edge IT trends such as virtualization, managed services and open source solutions.
“A new study released last week by trade association CompTIA indicates that small and mid-sized businesses in the United States are increasingly relying on new IT solutions to strengthen various aspects of their operations. This conclusion was established based on an online survey of more than 400 executives spread across key verticals in February 2010.
Not surprisingly, the ‘Second Annual SMB Technology Adoption Trends’ report determined that 80 percent of SMBs are looking for technology solutions that “deliver immediate payback in terms of minimum disruption of business continuity and seamless integration with existing solutions.” Indeed, a majority (71 percent) say that they are willing to pay a premium for new solutions with a proven ROI.”
