    Abstract:

    Got cloud? If you’re an SMB, you’ve already been there, done that. But are you really extracting maximum value out of your cloud hosted solutions?

    SMBs use an average of five hosted services, between IaaS, hosted email and collaboration and business applications – and that number is expected to climb to almost ten cloud services by next year. Everyone’s dabbling, but SMBs crave the cloud sophistication of their enterprise-grade competitors.

    - How are enterprises pivoting so quickly to respond to operational goals and drive bottom line results?
    - How can SMBs use cloud functions to serve an ever-impatient customer base?
    - Can SMBs realize the kind of growth and innovation through cloud services that enterprises expect?
    - And more importantly, how do SMB CIOs get their hands on all of those pretty, shiny enterprise toys?

    We’ll answer those questions and more with this expert panel of enterprise leaders who will share their strategies for success that SMBs can copy by using cloud services.
