Top 10 Technology Lay Offs in 2014

Top 10 Technology Lay Offs in 2014

Top 10 Technology Lay Offs in 2014 have been in major corporations.  The lay offs have impacted 65,800 and are:

  1. Microsoft 18,000
  2. HP 18,000
  3. Siemens Unify 7,700
  4. SAP 6,000
  5. IBM 6,000
  6. Intel 5,000
  7. Dell 2,500
  8. Sprint 1,500
  9. NetApp 600
  10. Juniper Networks 500

These corporations continue to shed jobs as the IT market changes to be more focused on Cloud applications and user mobility.  It is not clear that these organizations will continue to be industry leaders.

Notably absent from this list are companies like Facebook, Google, and Twitter.  We feel these organizations will replace the old legacy organizations as industry leaders.
