Indian MSMEs lack awareness of cloud computing: CII-IMRB Report

The recently released CII-IMRB joint research paper ‘Adoption of Cloud in MSMEs\\\' based on survey conducted with 8000 MSMEs across 22 Indian cities, reports that the overall awareness of cloud amongst MSME is only 2 percent. Out of this, the ratio of companies adopting cloud services is just about 4 percent.

The recently released CII-IMRB joint research paper ‘Adoption of Cloud in MSMEs' based on survey conducted with 8000 MSMEs across 22 Indian cities, reports that the overall awareness of cloud amongst MSME is only 2 percent. Out of this, the ratio of companies adopting cloud services is just about 4 percent.

It also highlights that the MSMEs look at cloud as an innovative concept and have concerns around data security, especially in businesses like IT/ ITES and BFSI and therefore further enabling environment and awareness needs to be built.

 

Some of the key findings of the study are as follows. 

a)      Triggers for adoption of cloud computing

Effective hardware utilization emerges as one of the key reason for adopting cloud computing solutions. This seems to be more prominent among smaller SMEs; this could be because they would like to best use their existing hardware and reduce their bottom line expenses.

 

b)      Areas of business that have been moved to cloud

Key functions being outsourced includes sales and marketing perception of cloud computing deferscity-wise and industry verticals. HR related data has also been moved on cloud among MSMEs with 1-10 employees.

 

c)       Concerns in cloud adoption

Data security is arguably the biggest concern when we look at the SMEs who work on the customer data or have sensitive data that they would not want their competitors to have access to like IT, BFSI, Education or those who may not have dedicated IT personnel.
