Currently in South Africa, the micro, small and medium enterprises (MSME) sector provides employment to about 60% of the labour force and accounts for roughly 34% of total gross domestic product (GDP). It is vital, in the South African context, to enable this economic sector to scale, develop and grow its contribution to the GDP and create jobs. Access to technology, infrastructure and support services that work to nurture this growth are a core focus for a sustainable future.
How the Cloud enables MSME business
By using Cloud Technology enabling MSME business to streamline and automate operations, reach new customers, improve the customer experience, reduce costs and expand product lines, businesses can scale with less friction and budget-related constraints by adopting infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) technology offerings.

Choosing the right Cloud Provider and architecture is an important decision that can have a significant impact on your organisation’s operations, performance and cost efficiency.
