SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., —There has been little good news about the economy lately, particularly on the jobs front.  New In-Stat research, however, shows that Enterprise business spending on IT and telecom services, which include cloud computing, wireless, wireline voice, wireline data, and business IP/VoIP, will move in a positive direction in 2011, increasing a healthy 6% over 2010.
