Small- and Medium-Sized Businesses Prefer Cloud-First Print Management with Edge Computing

by Imaging Solution Bureau

Y Soft Corporation today released the findings of a global, independent survey that explored the cloud and cloud-based print management preferences of small and medium sized businesses (SMBs).

The report, Cloud Print Management, is based on a survey of technology decision makers regarding their use of cloud technology today, their concerns and preferences for using cloud technology in general, and specifically for print management services.

Additionally, their knowledge, use and preference for edge computing was of interest. As a leader in enterprise workflow solutions for print management and document capture, Y Soft wanted to study SMB’s preference and concern for adopting cloud and edge technology.

Y Soft has been a provider of edge technology for use in large enterprises since 2008 and its use in SMB could be equally beneficial, Y Soft hypothesized. The edge device as described in the survey would enable print jobs to be processed locally on the company’s network.

Considering SMB’s concern for cloud-based print management security, (61%), this indicates that the additional security peace of mind that comes with edge computing and its other benefits are desired.

“As we speak to customers and partners and study market trends, SMB’s existing use and preference for edge computing as part of cloud-based print services, confirms our belief that edge devices have an extremely important role,” said Ondřej Krajíček, Y Soft Chief Technology Strategist.

“Unlike their enterprise counterparts, SMB’s appetite for a cloud-first approach is much larger. We believe, however, that this will change, and organizations of all sizes will demand cloud-first for all services, including print management,” he added.
