This week’s Channel Futures People Making Waves features executives and experts at Lumen, Accenture, Amazon, Canalys and more. Our weekly list highlights the people behind the top-performing, most-read stories of the week.

First up is Accenture. The company seemed not to be impacted by the tech layoffs affecting so many large firms. Then this week the shoe dropped. The company laid off 19,000 workers, or 2.5% of its global workforce. Learn from CEO Julie Sweet what this means moving forward for the massive tech organization.

The editors at Channel Futures enjoy compiling lists. They take complicated information and boil it down to the essentials. This includes our latest CF List, where analysts at Omdia, Forrester and Frost & Sullivan weigh in on threat intelligence market trends. If you’re paying attention to the ins and outs of hybrid work, this list is for you.

Finally, it’s a great time to be an MSP, according to Canalys’ Jay McBain. In 2022 alone, he said the managed services market was worth $387 billion. “It’s a solid, double-digit growing business.” It’s good tech news in this season of weekly upheaval.
