  • Cloud providers are optimistic, survey finds
    Companies that offer cloud services expect to see strong sales over the next two years, with providers forecasting a doubling of revenues through 2014, according to a recent survey. The poll of 179 cloud companies, conducted by KPMG International, suggests the growth will be propelled by demand for a host of services -- including content management, customer care and analytics -- and that the biggest challenge facing providers is unrealistic cost-savings expectations of prospective customers.

    The Federal Communications Commission should approve AT&T's plan to bring 4G wireless service to 99% of the country while allowing the current regulatory structure that governs plain old telephone service to sunset, a Wall Street Journal columnist argues. The plan represents a compromise in which the carrier will still invest billions of dollars in extending its broadband network to unprofitable areas in exchange for the lifting of an archaic regulatory arrangement.
