In another milestone that marks the coming together of Channel Partners Online and Channel Futures, we bring you our top 20 stories from March.

A top 12 countdown has been a staple on Channel Partners Online every month for several years. But now, as one site dedicated to the entire IT and telecom channel community, we’re bigger and better.

In this case, we’ve combined March’s top stories from Channel Futures and the now-historic Channel Partners Online into one. How do we determine our top stories? We don’t; you do! We base it on online traffic numbers and performance in our daily and weekly newsletters. You can sign up for those here.

Not to give too much away, but here you’ll find a big focus on mergers and acquisitions. Telarus buying Chorus Communications, for instance, was red hot on Channel Partners Online in March. Channel Futures readers were equally as interested in the massive Synnex-Tech Data distribution deal.

There was plenty of controversy as well. RingCentral and Zoom are battling it out in a courtroom. And an MSP made a joke that didn’t set well with the transgender community.

Those are just a few of the headlines making a stop in our top stories countdown for March. Next month, we’ll have the luxury of pulling every story in our countdown from Channel Futures, the new home for the entire telecom and IT community.

Which story was No. 1? Take a stroll through our slideshow above.
