January 21, 2011 at 3:17 pm PST

- How is technology allowing small businesses to act like big businesses (but at an affordable price tag)?

- What is this thing called “the cloud” and why should I care?

These questions and more were answered this week by Cisco’s own small business technology experts, Andrew Sage and Ian Pennell, in a video interview as part of the Talk2Cisco series.

Small Biz talkon Talk2Cisco

In case you didn’t catch it yesterday Cisco hosted a session about Small Business on Talk2Cisco a live, real-time, social, interactive, online video broadcast.   Some of our SMB leaders driving the initative here  shared their views, and took questions live, online all around the topic of  Small Business.  They tackled the question from a viewer why should small businesses even care about technology when they have a business to run,  shared real life stories of small busiensses that used  IT as a real business tool  and, of course, gave a bit of  advice on what small businesses should  look for in technology as  part of the session. 

Suffice to say there’s nothing “small” about this intiative to us and we’ve been driving it hard for about 3 years now with milestone after milestone.  There’s  loads of info, customer stories, and other goods on the SB site and Cisco has lots to say on the topic.  So if you want to know more about what Cisco is up to in the land of small business, have an opinion or thought to share we welcome you to join us in our conversations…and think small!
