The Week Ending Oct. 9

A number of the largest IT companies in the world came to win this week, leading with Dell, which may purchase EMC in a blockbuster deal that would include controlling interest in VMware. The purchase would disrupt the industry and put serious pressure on competitors Cisco and Hewlett-Packard.

Cisco and AWS each hosted conferences where they launched a slew of products, services and solutions all based around the Internet of Things. One of the biggest solution providers in the world, CSC, revealed plans to acquire yet another company this year -- Australia's largest IT services company, UXC, for $300 million.

Solution provider Denali Advanced Integration also did some remarkable things by raising $60,000 for Seattle Children's Hospital and for its Research Institute through its hosting of the Denali Dash community 5K road race last weekend.

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.
