Etisalat has held the first of a series of digital conferences to raise awareness on cloud services among small and midsize businesses (SMBs)
The SMB Digital Cloud Conference was organised jointly by Etisalat and Intel to help executives and IT professionals in SMBs understand the barriers and benefits of moving to the cloud and identify the relevance of developing and executing strategic cloud plans into their organisations.
Esam Mahmoud, acting senior vice president, small and medium business, Etisalat, said, “We are proud to host the SMB Digital Cloud Conference in partnership with Intel. Our objective is to gather experts onto one platform and create an ecosystem that helps our SMB customers gain insight into the various facets of cloud adoption into their business.”
Cloud and software as a service (SaaS) applications empower small businesses to cut down costs and reduce complexity of IT investments.
According to a Forbes 2016 global survey, 59% of organisations using cloud services reported significant productivity benefits.
