    By linking apps together, administrators can more easily move users from desktops and laptops to tablets, depending on the industry and jobs, as well as save on costs. The mobile and tablet revolution in small businesses is well underway. As AT&T found in 2014, more than nine out of 10 respondents who use mobile apps have them on their smartphone, while slightly more than half use them on a tablet.

In today's fast-paced mobile world, more and more small businesses are taking advantage of the cloud. A 2014 survey report shows that use of mobile apps by small businesses increased 65 percent in the previous two years, and over half of the small businesses surveyed use mobile apps.

The reliance on apps naturally translates into increasingly cloud-based workflows for small businesses. This transition isn't without its pain points, however. Unexpected factors such as broken workflows, the cost of infrastructure, and the need for security can create problems, and can contribute to chaos in the IT environment, if not managed correctly. What is a small business with limited resources to do?

In this slideshow, Charles Edge, product manager of Bushel, provides the top six resolutions small businesses should consider for 2016 to help them rein in control over their cloud environment.
