Channel People Making Waves highlights eight individuals at Avant, CIsco, Databricks and other companies who made an impact in the industry this week. We associate our picks with the most read stories of the week.

First up, we write about a 22-year veteran who just stepped down from her role at Cisco. Read more about who will be replacing her in the company’s global security sales specialist organization.

Next, we look into the rumors surrounding plain old telephone service (POTS) replacement and why social media contributed to misinformation. We interviewed Jay Morris from MoreComm who seemed to have his facts straight about any FCC mandate regarding POTS.

Then, we explore the AWS-Databricks expanded collaboration, which makes it easier for partners to better support their AWS customers with new deployments of Databricks’ Lakehouse.

Finally, the top story of the week involved a both surprising yet somewhat expected merger. Can you guess which companies made a deal?
