The Week Ending July 22

Topping this week's roundup of companies that had a rough week were the managers and employees at Dell Wyse who face layoffs as Dell plans to focus on VMware's Horizon VDI software after its acquisition of EMC.

Also making the list were Microsoft for having to back off from its aggressive goals for Windows 10 adoption, solution provider CTG for the turmoil in its CEO office, VMware for problems with an NSX upgrade, and Southwest Airlines for a massive IT outage that has disrupted hundreds of flights this week.
