SMBs are no longer focusing on just surviving the COVID-19 pandemic. Instead, they are now ‘getting back to business’ while dealing with rising interest rates, inflation, supply chain disruptions, geopolitical uncertainties and labour shortages.

Our research shows that many SMBs continue to be optimistic about their companies, even though they are facing ongoing impediments. Even with this backdrop, we predict that SMBs’ total spending on IT worldwide will increase by 5.8% year-on-year in 2022; this growth will reach 7.4% by 2025.
