This week's Workday Wrap-Up includes several articles on what C-level executives think about emerging technologies such as cloud computing. We read about CIOs whose "calculated risks" with cloud computing, mobility, and social media paid off, and hear from several large companies who attest to cloud computing's positive impact on their growth strategies. Meanwhile, we also read about CIOs who don't "adapt" to cloud computing and social media, and what SaaS must prove before getting clearance from CFOs.
