The billions of dollars invested in cloud, wireless, big data, security and other networking startups in 2015 means that enterprise IT shops will have plenty of new products and services from which to choose.

We'll keep track of 2016 funding announcements of possible interest to enterprise IT pros here, so bookmark this page and check back for updates. As we spot trends, we'll roll up collections of like companies and highlight them as well, as we did here for big data and analytics firms.
