on 01-Apr-2022 10:31:04 By | Andrew Allen | 0 Comments | Managed Service Management Strategy Technology
Introduction Digitalisation can be a gamechanger for SMEs but it needs to be part of a wider strategic plan to develop your business. Choosing the right digital products is key to delivering fast and sustainable results. For today’s SMEs, competition is rife wherever you look.

You use the cloud and don't even know it. Do you go to Amazon and create a wishlist? Do you have an email account with Google's Gmail or Outlook? That is cloud computing. All your emails are stored on Yahoo servers somewhere. They are on physical servers, of course, but they aren't on your laptop.
