Globally, there are between 350 million and 400 million small and medium-sized enterprises (SMBs). They comprise 90% of all firms and around 44% of the world’s gross domestic product (GDP). SMBs are the backbone of any society and the engine driving the world economy.
Although the previous several years have been difficult for SMBs, the market is showing many indicators of growth and potential. SMBs have expanded during the epidemic, and not simply out of necessity—more were founded in 2021 than since 2005. Many saw it as an opportunity to go out on their own, develop fresh goods and services, and forge a future that suited them.(Small Business Grow)

Supplying entire business solutions to small enterprises
SMBs have traditionally been forced to rely on a number of point solutions, none of which were a perfect fit for their particular requirements. A customised, integrated solution is actually in high demand.
According to a recent Forrester survey that Microsoft had funded, around 65% of SMBs prefer to buy software solutions as a “suite of solutions” that covers all of their company requirements.
With Microsoft 365, these technologies are combined into a single, seamless experience that maximizes the benefits of the cloud, makes it simpler for workers to work from anywhere, and lowers expenses and administrative burden. The tools small companies need to manage their expanding enterprises, attract new clients, and work with staff, partners, and customers from nearly anywhere are included in Microsoft 365, an affordable, secure cloud solution.
