Most small businesses rely on technology solutions to perform their day-to-day tasks. One indispensable solution is Office 365, Microsoft’s cloud-based subscription service that includes online versions of standard Office applications like Word, Powerpoint, and Excel, as well as collaboration apps like Skype for Business and Microsoft Teams.
There are over a million small- and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) in Texas, accounting for 45.6% of total private employment in the state. A large fraction of these businesses have fewer than 100 employees running their entire operations, and various technology solutions help their rather slim workforce deliver high-quality products and services within deadlines, improve customer experience, and increase their bottom line.

Don’t be misled by shiny words such as “increased productivity” and “collaboration” — your organization won’t realize these benefits unless everyone actually puts in the work to make the cloud work. If you want to use the cloud successfully, you might have to change your mind about a thing or two before you migrate to the cloud.
