Summary

Small firms are the main drivers in promoting economic growth, increasing employment, and maintaining social stability. Rising uncertainties in the global economic outlook have compelled small enterprises to look out for disruptive technologies such as cloud computing and business intelligence, to enable them to stay competitive and increase their revenues. Additionally, technologies such as mobility, cloud computing, enterprise applications, and business intelligence offer benefits such as reduced operational costs, improved productivity, and the better streamlining of operations to ensure sustainable growth.

Key Findings

Kable's survey shows that small enterprises are optimistic about investing in various ICT domains in 2015. Enterprises are allocating a major proportion of their ICT budgets to core domains such as hardware, software, and IT services.

Investments in hardware are primarily driven by the growing use of clients and networking equipment, while investments in software are driven by the need to streamline and optimize processes, to run operations better, and to reduce costs and replace paper processes.
