Got cloud? If you’re an SMB, you’ve already been there, done that. But are you really extracting maximum value out of your cloud hosted solutions? 

SMBs use an average of five hosted services, between IaaS, hosted email and collaboration and business applications – and that number is expected to climb to almost ten cloud services by next year. Everyone’s dabbling, but SMBs crave the cloud sophistication of their enterprise-grade competitors.

- How are enterprises pivoting so quickly to respond to operational goals and drive bottom line results?

- How can SMBs use cloud functions to serve an ever-impatient customer base?

- Can SMBs realize the kind of growth and innovation through cloud services that enterprises expect?
