Yaacov Cohen, CEO of harmon.ie weighs in on the value of the cloud for small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs).

“‘The cloud is very compelling for SMBs because it requires no IT staff. It’s also a natural fit for mobile.’

He recommends a data less tablet and the cloud. While his company develops mobile and alternative client apps for Microsoft Office 365 and SharePoint, he points to Salesforce, SkyDrive, and even Office Web Apps as more options to keep corporate data in the cloud vs. on the device.
