Tech Recovery and SMBs

The most recent issue of the Kiplinger Letter (subscription required) predicts we are in a tech recovery that will last for years. It will be marked by steady growth, instead of the booms and busts of the past decade.

The largest software providers — Microsoft, IBM, Oracle, SAP — will be aggressively wooing small and midsize businesses (SMBs), Kiplinger predicts.

And is it any wonder? The small business market is very attractive, accounting for 31% of total IT expenditures in the United States.
