Cloud computing has afforded a lot of opportunities for the SME since its introduction. Initially received with trepidation, the whole area of cloud computing quite rightly is highlighted as being a particular area recommended for SMEs. Incorporating cloud computing into SMEs operations allows them to free up funds allocated usually to I.T. and ancillary issues but the cloud allows the SME owner to consolidate a lot of investment into one area which means it is more economical.
