The Week Ending Sept. 22
Topping this week's roundup of companies that came to win is Amazon Web Services, which took the cloud price battle to a new level with plans to bill customers by the second for cloud services.
Also making the list are Oracle for its own plans to out-compete cloud service rivals, Internet of Things technology developer Itron for its deal to acquire IoT heavyweight Silver Spring Networks for $830 million, Ruckus Wireless for upgrading its partner program during a time of uncertainty for partners, and DevOps superstar HashiCorp for launching its first partner program.
Not everyone in the IT industry was making smart moves this week, of course. For a rundown of companies that were unfortunate, unsuccessful or just didn't make good decisions, check out this week's 5 Companies That Had A Rough Week roundup.
