A Microsoft study shows that nearly half of all small businesses have an interest in cloud applications.
The survey seems a bit short on details, but did indicate that close to 40 percent of small shops will have at least one cloud app in the next year. This could be as minor as Gmail or as big as Office 365.
It does kind of make sense for small firms to go the cloud. This way they can avoid costly IT paychecks -- as long as the cloud apps actually do what they are supposed to do, and are easy to manage and secure.
