In this IDC whitepaper, you will learn how small and medium businesses can leverage Google Cloud Platform to accelerate business growth through increased productivity and scalability while achieving greater cost efficiencies.
As a bit of a sneak peek of some of the insights Inside, the IDC’s research found that small and medium-sized businesses saw:
- 222% return on investment (ROI) over three years
- 36% lower costs of operations over three years
- 8 months to see payback on the technology investment
- 41% more efficient IT teams
- 26% cost reduction in IT infrastructure
- 19% increase in developer productivity
lowering IT operation costs
A good reason to consider Google Cloud is that SMBs who run their operations through Google Cloud Platform saw an average lower IT infrastructure cost of 26%. One business user of the platform stated it cost them ~15% less than other providers to utilise serverless computing and VMs (virtual machines).
Google Cloud Platform costs less because it has a lot of serverless features that are cheaper than the other cloud platforms we considered... We run and then destroy VMs on a regular basis, so serverless saves us money and this was one of the factors. Google Cloud Platform costs about 15% less than the others.
