According to a recent survey, if more Indian small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) adopt the latest IT tools, there is a potential for SMEs to grow their revenue by Rs 3 lakh crores and create 11 lakh new jobs.
Over the past three years, revenues of the IT-enabled SMEs grew 15 percent faster and created twice as many jobs, when compared to SMEs which used less technology.
Technological advancement such as cloud services brings potential for the most far-reaching innovation and business growth ever, creating an opportunity for more SMEs to achieve the growth rates of technology leaders by leveraging technology to fuel productivity and growth.
The ICT Industry is fully equipped to meet the challenging requirements of the SMEs and for SMEs, adoption of ICT for business operations has become a necessity to become globally competitive.
