Top Predictions For How Small Businesses Will Use Technology In 2014 Via Acumor
As 2014 begins, the business press has been awash in predictions. This has held true, too, for publications focusing on technology. Just look at Business News Daily, which recently ran its top tech trends for small businesses to watch out for in 2014. If you run a small business, it makes sense to take a look at the business trends that this publication predicts.
Business News Daily predicts that a growing number of companies will stop treating the IT department as a separate entity in 2014. Instead, they’ll view this critical department as an integrated, strategic business driver, according to the story. Business executives will ask why they are running their IT departments in a certain way and whether that way makes the most sense for their companies.
Business News Daily predicts, too, that in 2014 business owners will become smarter about using the cloud. Instead of just relying on cloud services from Google and Microsoft, more businesses will search out smaller, but more efficient, cloud vendors. And that will only enhance the productivity of small businesses across the country.
The end of Windows 8
The story also says that consumers will reject Windows 8, making the operating system disappear. According to Business News Daily, consumers, fed up with Windows 8 complicated navigation, will either revert to Windows 7 or quickly update to the next operating system that Microsoft will develop.
