SB IT struggles and priorities in 2024


Lilian Gomes, Project Manager


In 2024, small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) in the IT sector are grappling with a myriad of challenges while navigating their priorities. As technology continues to evolve at a rapid pace, SMBs face the daunting task of keeping up with the latest trends, cybersecurity threats, and regulatory requirements.

One of the prominent struggles for SMBs in the IT sector revolves around cybersecurity. With cyberattacks becoming increasingly sophisticated and frequent, SMBs are under constant pressure to fortify their defences against data breaches, ransomware attacks, and other malicious activities. This necessitates significant investments in robust cybersecurity measures and employee training to mitigate risks effectively.

Furthermore, SMBs are challenged with harnessing the power of emerging technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI), cloud computing, and the Internet of Things (IoT) to drive innovation and remain competitive in the market. However, limited budgets and resources often hinder their ability to adopt and integrate these technologies seamlessly into their operations.

Amidst these struggles, SMBs in the IT sector are prioritizing initiatives aimed at enhancing operational efficiency, streamlining workflows, and improving customer experience. Whether it's optimizing their IT infrastructure, embracing digital transformation, or leveraging data analytics for strategic decision-making, SMBs are strategically allocating their resources to initiatives that promise tangible returns on investment and long-term sustainability.

Join us in this chapter to hear more about how to harness this situation and transform in benefits for you and your clients.
