The Week Ending June 22
Topping this week's roundup of companies that came to win is Hewlett Packard Enterprise for its expanded R&D efforts in edge computing, as well as a number of other breakthrough technology and channel announcements at its Discover and Global Partner Summit conferences this week.
Also making the list this week are cybersecurity startups CrowdStrike and Cylance for raising an impressive $200 million and $120 million, respectively, in venture financing. Microsoft is a winner for its savvy deal to acquire AI startup Bonsai, as is solution provider Blueprint Technologies for developing its own data interconnectivity commercial software. And Intel makes the list for the growing acceptance of its silicon-based security technology for AI and Blockchain applications.
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 Five Companies That Had A Rough Week roundup.
