Small and medium-sized enterprises represent well over 90% of all businesses in Asia, and across the 14 markets under review they employ some 1.02 billion people and contribute around $10.9 trillion directly into the economies in which are based (49.1% of total GDP for the region.) They also spend significantly as a group on ICT.
Cloud computing – and cloud computing technology – has the potential to be the ‘great leveller’ for both SMEs and developing economies. This is because cloud offers the prospect of both the access to enterprise grade tools on a pay-per-use basis making them immediately accessible and affordable, and the ability to scale up and down such access as required (elasticity of use). In other words, upfront capex requirements go down substantially.
What are their challenges to using cloud? How can this technology be made more available to SMEs, so that they can harness its power for digital transformation? This report reviews 14 markets' SME industry, and establishes market size, characteristics, and identifies industries most likely to undergo digital transformation.
