Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) are critical to the growth and prosperity of our country and according to recent studies, SMEs in India contribute to more than 50% of the country's GDP.

When it comes to technology, they generally have been smart and intelligent adopters. Key drivers for their technology decision making have been affordability, ease of usage, value to business and expertise/support. According to an AMI study, the Indian SMEs are gradually becoming more interested in cloud based services like data storage/back up, servers and security solutions being the main focus. However the lack of complete understanding surrounding the cloud services and the intrinsic value they offer is still a major hindrance to the adoption of cloud-based services.

Cloud computing is a way of efficiently delivering, consuming and managing technology. Promoting cloud-based businesses is the latest trend in the IT industry. Be it big players or SMEs, the lucrative prospects related to cloud are proving attractive to all. At a core level, cloud computing signifies the trend towards sharing of applications, software and other IT resources by companies on an on-demand basis. Service providers offer these services in the same way as public utility companies supply electricity or water to consumers and then charge for the quantities used. Offerings available in the cloud environment have been categorized as Software as a Service, Infrastructure as a Service, and Platform as a Service.

For most SMEs starting up, cannot foresee the exact demand for computing, storage, etc. the cloud offers scalability. SaaS provides a strategic fit to the needs of SMEs by its ability to meet the growing and evolving needs of such an organization while maintaining optimal expenditure outlays for such provisioning.

Given the benefits of cloud computing, it is also important to consider the matter of securing data in the cloud and with Security-as-a-Service (SaaS), SMEs can receive all the necessary security deliverables with little or almost no complexity. Receiving such security support enables SMEs to do their respective businesses without any worries.
