I have done no survey, but having been through the process recently of making choices for things like mail, web, calendar, document collaboration, storage for a small start-up, google apps (as an example of your more general description) is a compelling choice. Requiring zero infrastructure at the (home) office(s) beyond whatever the kids already demand in order to watch netflix is a big win.

If this isn't a major trend for the medium-sized companies being discussed here, I don't know why. $5/month/user is ridiculousy cheap compared to the cost of employing two full-time IT people and sufficient herds of contractors to set up things like exchange, sharepoint, file servers, etc.
