After a bit of a slowdown in the first half of summer, M&A activity picked up in a hurry once the calendar flipped to August.

Last month we saw Vonage add to its long line of acquisitions in the past three years that will impact partners. Cox Business made another big step into managed services and cloud by buying RapidScale. ScanSource made a key CRM purchase that will affect both its and Intelisys’ partners.

But those were just a handful of the mergers and acquisitions involving major channel players in August. Scroll through the gallery below for 14 acts of consolidation that not only impact the suppliers and fellow channel partners with whom you do business, but potentially your business as well.
