Apple iCloud

Apple iCloud is well suited for personal use and management of multiple Apple devices. It could also be used for small business environments, but it is not well suited for medium to large businesses due to it's lack of customization and integration with custom domains. The free storage offered and automatic iCloud backups of iOS devices are the best features.

OneNote

OneNote is great for making it really easy to take, organize and access your notes across devices. It's not great for collaboration (which is probably by design). Also, sometimes the interface can be a little slow to work with.

Even if it's not intuitive, you can easily save your work until you can figure out how to do something.

Alternatives Considered

Apple iCloud has less document sharing features than the competition, but does a much better job in two key areas; backing up documents and photos natively on the iOS platform, and assisting in the seamless transition when working between mobile devices and laptops.
Timothy Watkins, GWAPT profile photo
OneNote provides better integration into the Microsoft platform. It also excels over Evernote due to OneNote being ad-free and offline supported.

Return on Investment

  • Since I pay for iCloud myself it hasn't had a major impact except that I can work between my personal phone and work iPad.
Buck Buchanan profile photo
  • It has allowed us to combine multiple products into a single platform which has made troubleshooting and well as document retention much easier on the IT staff.
