There are number of SMEs in and around Pune mainly across the auto & auto component and engineering sector. But as far as IT adoption is concerned, it is still a thorn issue among these SMEs. The rate of IT adoption among Indian industry has increased over the years although it has been more or less limited to the big players. The IT adoption among Micro, Small & Medium enterprises though on rise, remains sub-optimal.
IT among SMEs is different from large businesses. Generally, there is basic level of computerization, i.e. LAN for office automation & communication and some of the basic functions such as accounting and payroll have been computerized. But the larger processes like Enterprise Resource Planning, Decision Support System and E-commerce still remain out of purview of SMEs.
