Consolidation in telecom and IT is having a big impact on agents, VARs and MSPs.
August 8, 2018
Consolidation in telecom and IT is having a big impact on the agents, VARs, MSPs and other types of channel partners that sell these companies’ products and services.
Over the past two months, we saw AT&T bolster its security position with the purchase of AlienVault. After a long history of its own acquisitions, Polycom sold to Plantronics for a big sum. And analysts were left scratching their heads when Broadcom said it would buy CA Technologies – a seemingly incompatible business – but time will tell.
Those are just a few of the new mergers and acquisitions – as well as key updates to some that were previously announced – from June and July that are featured below in our gallery. Scroll through to catch up on all of the wheeling and dealing, as well as how this M&A activity could impact the channel and your business.
