Digitalization for SMEs

All it takes and how to approach it.
Consultation from one SME to another.

A strong foundation for digital SMEs

“Digital transformation” – it sounds as desirable as it is challenging. Society and politics are increasingly pushing small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) to embrace digital transformation. However, when considering the digitalization of SMEs, it becomes clear how difficult it can be to strike a balance between proven tradition and useful innovation.

Digitalized business processes increase a company’s efficiency, added value, competitiveness, and future viability, as well as improving relationships with customers and partners. At the start of this kind of project, it can look like a mammoth task. So let's take the first step together. Before investing in modern cloud applications such as video telephony and collaboration tools, digital platforms for trading and exchange, or smart industry sensors and systems, you need something fundamental to be in place. The digital foundation: a secure and powerful IT network.

We are happy to show you what you need for this and why a well-planned, (cost-)efficient, and scalable IT infrastructure will get you further than the next trending app. From one SME to another.

NIS2 now also applies to SMEs

No company is too small not to attach importance to its own cyber security. In fact, this care will also be required by law in future as a result of the NIS2 directive. Companies with as few as 50 employees or an annual turnover of 10 million are affected in the defined CRITIS sectors. Failure to do so will be very expensive and unpleasant from October 2024 at the latest. Check now whether you are covered by the directive and which requirements you have to fulfil:

Know and incorporate IT trends 2024

“As SMEs face the ever-increasing demands of the digital transformation, the trend is clearly toward increased data transmission speed, intelligent cloud utilization, and a general reduction in complexity.

To what extent is the cloud and as-a-service concept already being adopted by SMEs? What is driving the expansion of company networks? And what investments in networks are SMEs planning for 2024?” – techconsult study from 2024
