This IDC study presents a SMB-specific forecast for the business file synchronization and sharing market for the 2015–2019 forecast period. Additional analysis includes the key drivers and inhibitors facing technology suppliers when developing SMB go-to-market strategies.
"Business file sync and share is one of the, if not the most, popular cloud service with SMB-sized customers. However, it is often the cause of shadow IT–related problems and unsanctioned company data access as much as it is viewed by line of business as a productivity enabler. Over the forecast period, we expect this paradigm will shift as IT develops more of a partnership posture with LOB and seeks to utilize a broader cloud IT adoption stance to mitigate new security threats and maintain organizational agility," says Christopher Chute, research vice president, SMB Cloud and Mobility Practice, IDC.
