Tech M&As Expected to Slow: Report

After surging to record highs last year, mergers and acquisitions in the technology sector are expected to cool in the months ahead, with the bulk of deals driven by the corporate world’s ongoing shift to cloud computing, as well as new data management needs created by the Internet of Things, a new report says.
