Midsized businesses in the UK and Ireland are confident in their IT and respect its capabilities but worry about security and fear the effects of Brexit and elections.
Small and medium-sized enterprises are a huge part of the modern economy, accounting for about 99 per cent of European businesses. In this report, we look specifically at companies with 100 to 499 staff. These midsized businesses continue to be powered by the entrepreneurs and dreamers who want to build tomorrow’s business powerhouses or, alternatively, retain command of their own fortunes without the responsibilities and distractions of being a large enterprise. These companies have traditionally succeeded by focusing on niche opportunities or serving local markets but in today’s digitising, globalising world, IT is a huge and growing part of their ability to compete.
