A new trend is emerging that promises to help SMBs take full advantage of cloud computing — the proliferation of easy-to-use marketplaces focusing on business-oriented SaaS apps. App store hosting companies are working with major retailers like Staples, which offers its own App Center, as well as with nonprofits that support small businesses, such as state and local chambers of commerce.
