Technically speaking, the cloud has long been established in modern corporate IT, but especially small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) still see some uncertainties regarding the potentials, and above all, the potential risks of a cloud strategy. Therefore, they often shy away from opening up the obvious potential.

But the direct cost aspect is not the only argument for a cloud strategy.
