If you work in a SMB and are thinking about moving to the cloud, we need your help

Do you work in a small or medium sized business (SMB) and have you ever thought about moving to the cloud or have recently completed a migration? If this is you, we need your help.

We are on a fact-gathering mission to try and compile some data around small and medium sized businesses who have or are thinking about moving to the cloud, and we want to know what influenced your decisions or the criteria you set before making the jump.

If you have a few minutes (really, it will take less than five minutes) hit the survey link at the bottom and answer the 12 quick questions for us.

Why should you help us? Well, first and foremost, we will be able to share the data we gather with our readers--who may be facing some of the same questions themselves. But second, a $250 Visa gift card will be awarded to one randomly-selected individual who completes the survey.

Thanks for helping out; we really do appreciate your awesome loyalty.

Is that a real survey...?
- No registration (prone to abuse)
- No implementation specific questions
- Nothing about provider names
- Nothing about Private or Hybrid clouds
- the definition of SMB is interesting (1000+ employees stretches it quite a bit)

I guess I could go on...

Agreed, some of the questions are a little open ended. Such as the question about achieving "full implementation", depends on what you consider full implementation. One person may think getting all users using the basics of platform to be full implementation, however, someone else may set a higher bar. That said, still interested in the results.

If you ask me, the gift card and the fact that people can enter the survey sans contacting you beforehand pretty much screams abuse to me.

I'd tighten up the entry a bit.

That is so general, "moving to the cloud". Pretty sure in the real world its a little more nuanced than just throwing around a meaningless buzz word.

You'd be surprised, in the world of hosting cloud is pretty much a defined word afaik.
And no, it's not your usual VPS/shared server/dedicated server story.
