We run a clean shop here. But then I thought I’d match GLM’s list to actual buzzword occurrences on the TEC site. Here’s what I found: Cloud Computing: 10 results Green washing: 1 result Buzzword

But, while that market is enormous in terms of companies, it's difficult to make money, as these companies are incredibly price sensitive (and might still require some industry depth). Over time, the cost of SaaS Read More
