AT&T, Cisco and several other big-name vendors updated their channel programs in the last month.

Several high-profile updates hit the channel last month as channel chiefs offered shockingly candid takes about how they want to improve the partner experience. Take for example, AT&T’s Chris Jones, who detailed the gauntlet of partner feedback that the carrier solicited before revamping its programs.

It’s clear that vendors are relying more and more on indirect sales – whether it be through a reseller or an agent – and indirect services – whether it be through an MSP or a systems integrator. We continue to see more and more MDF pouring into the channel as vendors seek to prove their financial commitment to partners.

While telcos like AT&T and Verizon made the headlines last month, the IT side of the channel grabbed attention as well, as AWS, Ingram Micro and a variety of cybersecurity providers announced new programs and partner enhancements.
