Microsoft has been closemouthed about exactly how many companies (or people) use its Office 365 cloud services, but the researchers over at SMB tracking firm TechAisle think they have some insight.

Approximately 10 percent of small businesses are actively investigating Microsoft’s cloud applications suite, reports TechAisle, based on a survey of small and midsize businesses.

Size definitely matters. For example, 30 percent of the TechAisle survey respondents employing 20 to 49 people were considering Office 365, while only 6 percent of the companies with one to four people were thinking about it.

The most intriguing features for the survey respondents were email and calendar management, remote working capabilities and collaboration applications, reports TechAisle.
