The Week Ending Sept. 25
The five companies that this week grew their business or the industry had in common the ability to think big.
They included a flash storage vendor that grabbed headlines for the huge IPO it will shortly initiate, a solution provider looking to scale up its data center business with a merger, and a couple of companies betting big on growing their cloud business.
Then there's the video collaboration firm that not only got a good new round of funding, but did it in style by convincing a former New York Yankees shortstop to "pitch in."
Not everyone in the IT industry pulled in the kind of positive buzz these winners brought in 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.
