If you’re like us, summer went by in the blink of an eye. But that doesn’t mean August wasn’t chock full of important news to the channel — and you agreed, frequenting Channel Partners for a wide variety of articles.

For instance, AT&T Partner Solutions channel chief Stacey Marx updated us on what’s happening with the carrier’s channel program six months into her tenure as leader, including the latest with 5G and a “massive” IoT opportunity.

Telarus hosted its growing Partner Summit, attracting partners to the mountains of Colorado for networking, education, awards and more.

A big name in security – Symantec – said it would lay off 7% of its workforce, and two stories from earlier in the year proved to have the staying power to remain in our countdown another month.

But that’s far from all.
