  • 3. Challenging conditions are shaping SMB IT investment priorities
    What analysts are saying
    What customers are saying
    WW Small and Medium Business Survey (October, 2008)
    “IT‘s contribution will be cited in the top three success factors by at least half of top-performing businesses; IT barriers will be cited in the top three failure factors by at least half of the lowest performers.”
    Gartner, December 2008;
    John Mahoney and Tom Berg
    “IT Strategies for Uncertain Economic Times”
    In order to compete…my company must:
    ..improve customer experiences
    ..stay focused on our original strategy
    ..invest in customer acquisition and retention
    ..improve processes to increase employee productivity
    If my company was to make one significant technology investment to help us compete in the next 6 months, I’d focus on:
    Making employees more productive
    Improving data management
    “SMBs … desire incremental but meaningful performance gains that can enhance productivity. Major overhauls and forklift upgrades are less attractive … (this) is where online services and cloud computing can make an important difference…”
    IDC, December 2008; “Impact of the Changing Economy on SMB IT Spending: Who Is Being Affected and How?”
    What business actions, if any, are you either currently taking, or planning to take:
    Use Technology to become more energy efficient
    Reduce travel (use phone, internet etc. instead)
    Take steps to reduce time/expense associated with systems management
    Improve customer experience or management through IT
