This week the Wall Street Journal (WSJ) published an article that was full of good news for most, but concern for others; and this, in our opinion, is just the beginning of the technological shift we are all witnessing. The article was entitled “Cloud Computing May Be Hampering Tech Spending: Analyst Report” .
