‘Small Business Success in the Cloud,’ describes the impact of cloud technology as it is progressively adapted by more and more small businesses – moving from an initial focus on efficiency gains, to the emergence of new models of business, through broad-based saturation across business and society.

The report is the first in a new ‘Dispatches from the New Economy’ research series, a comprehensive research project exploring the ways economic, technology and social shifts will shape the future of small business success. The series builds on a ten year partnership between Emergent Research and Intuit tracking trends in small business.
