The Week Ending May 19
Topping this week's roundup of companies that came to win is VMware, which acquired Apteligent with plans to roll the company's performance and monitoring technology into VMware's cloud and end-user management business.
Also making the list is security startup Crowdstrike, which landed $100 million in funding; security player CSPi, which unveiled new products and said it aims to recruit new partners; ePlus, which acquired software developer OneCloud; and SAP, whose executives told partners this week at Sapphire Now about the plan to ramp up sales of its SAP S/4HANA Cloud suite through the channel.
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.
