Why Enterprises Should Invest in Cloud Learning for Staff

With the rise in remote work, the cloud industry has experienced extraordinary growth, largely due to enterprise businesses transitioning their physical IT infrastructure to the cloud. Along with this rapid expansion into cloud technology comes the need for a workforce with cloud expertise.

Looking to Invest in Tech Stocks? 3 Top Buys for October

Software and cloud computing services have been all the rage this year as organizations have shifted to remote digital-based operations because of COVID-19. Tech hardware has been much more of a mixed bag.

Headed into the final quarter of 2020, some of this year’s biggest winners are showing signs of continuing their run, while other not-so-fortunate companies are predicting a rebound in 2021. Three contributors think Micron Technology (NASDAQ:MU), Nokia (NYSE:NOK), and Lam Research (NASDAQ:LRCX) are timely tech hardware buys for October.
