    "many PC refresh cycles are coming due in 2012"

    ["Next year is going to be a breakthrough year…We’ll see a lot of this cloud solution (SMB market) really take off, especially since many PC refresh cycles are coming due in 2012..."]

    2012 will be 'breakthrough year' for cloud adoption

    "Will 2012 be the year that smaller businesses embrace the cloud in a bigger way?

    Depends on who you ask, of course. As we prepare to bid goodbye to 2011, ITBusiness.ca turned to some cloud consultants and providers for their view from the trenches, and also looked at some statistical reports for a snapshot of indicators about SMB cloud adoption in the coming year.

    Based on those signposts, cloud deployment could be headed for an uptick among SMBs in the next 12 months.

    IT consultant Stuart Crawford takes that bullish view, predicting 2012 will be a turning point when more SMBs will move to the cloud. That migration will be fueled by aging SMB IT systems, a resulting overall increase in SMB IT spending plans, and the fact that many SMBs feel the wait-and-see period is over now that larger enterprise has already taken the cloud for a test drive.

    “I think that’s the next (cloud) frontier, those traditional on-premise solutions for smaller mid-market companies, the 25- to 100-employee type of companies,” says Crawford, president and chief marketing officer at Ulisitc Inc., a Calgary Internet consulting firm with a managed services provider (MSP) focus.

    “Next year is going to be a breakthrough year. We’ll see a lot of this cloud solution (SMB market) really take off, especially since many PC refresh cycles are coming due in 2012,” says Crawford, a member of ITBusiness.ca’s editorial advisory board."
