Discussion :  Using cloud technology is almost a must for small and medium-sized businesses in today’s economy.  The cloud can prove more cost-effective and efficient than using in-house staff to do accounting tasks, data management, running software, etc.  Many businesses already use the cloud in some fashion, like email and online banking, while others utilize a broader spectrum of services such as CRM, data backup, software maintenance, and virtual hardware.  Some concerns about the long-term stability of their data may make some businesses wary, but cloud computing will prove to be a staple of the business world.
