FLASH REPORT: Dollars and Data

It’s good to be back! The Flash Report returns to the studio this week from all the traveling we’ve done recently. First thing this week: Looks like cloud computing is gaining traction as cloud companies like Salesforce.com show increasing numbers of enterprise organizations shifting from traditional in-house system solutions to simplified cloud solutions.

Next, imagine a world without paper money or coins. That’s what happening in Sweden at this moment as many Swedish cities, public buses, and even some banks have stopped accepting and working with cash altogether. This transition has sparked more interest in startups to help serve and secure this data.

Lastly, the Internet economy is booming as Americans spent 256 billion dollars on the Internet in 2011. Now that’s a lot of money with just a click of a mouse. Click below to watch this week's Flash Report!
