SMB IT Journal is an online publication dedicated to providing small and medium businesses with the resources that they need to manage their Information Technology: Small and Medium Business Information Technology Journal.
In many ways, the SMB market has the same needs as large enterprises, but they often lack the experience in managing technology and they obviously lack the advantage of scale that larger corporations are able to leverage. What an SMB may lack in scale is often made up in agility and nimbleness.
Given the right tools and support, small businesses can compete with large businesses by taking advantage of their relative size to move more quickly, adapt more rapidly and to take risks that big companies are afraid to take. Information Technology is an important enabler of this behaviour and, if managed correctly, can bring many of the same benefits to smaller enterprises as it does to the Fortune 500.
SMB IT Journal’s mission is to educate small businesses in how they can utilize Information Technology in the same ways that large businesses leverage it. Small businesses often fail to compete adequately with their larger counterparts because they neglect to treat IT as a strategic, competitive advantage, but this is not the way that it has to be. IT can be a strategic advantage to the SMB market in exactly the same way.
