2016 was an eventful year for SMBs.

SMBs are a force to be reckoned with.

But, it is not easy to be an SMB executive. Obtaining capital, adhering to a variety of regulations and laws, concerns over data protection, and hiring qualified employees are still huge areas of concern.

Deep down SMB executives know that cloud technology holds the key to their success, but making the right choice in terms of platform, software and infrastructure can be daunting. They need information…great information about accessible, affordable and flexible cloud resources. And that is where Oracle can help. We rolled out a new small and medium business (SMB) blog where  thought leaders, customers, partners and leading entrepreneurs have come together to provide valuable actionable information that you, the SMB executive, can use to GO and grow your business
