Top 20 Stories in February: Layoff Peak, AppDirect-TBI Consequences, Avaya BankruptcyTop 20 Stories in February: Layoff Peak, AppDirect-TBI Consequences, Avaya Bankruptcy
Rob Rae moved to Pax8. Also, we recognized the top Channel Influencers. But what was No. 1?
March 3, 2023
Layoffs were about all anyone could talk about in January. They impacted big-name vendors and their channel leaders in droves, dominating last month’s top stories countdown. Fortunately, the quantity of job-cut announcements started to fade in the second half of last month, but they were still a concern.
So you won’t see a top 20 stories countdown bereft of layoff news. But you will see plenty of other headlines that had people talking. Take, for instance, our in-depth analysis of AppDirect‘s TBI acquisition. We went behind the scenes and talked with multiple sources who described the final days at TBI before the acquisition. We think you’ll find what they had to say pretty eye-opening; in fact, many of you already did since it ranked high on our countdown.
Avaya made headlines for its second bankruptcy in less than six years. Channel Futures editor Claudia Adrien detailed the company’s plans to rebound.
We also celebrated in February. We profiled Channel Futures’ Channel Influencers for 2023, those vendor execs, partners, analysts and industry consultants making a real impact on the industry.
Let’s get to it. See our slideshow above for Channel Futures’ top 20 stories in February. They are compiled from our tally of online pageviews as well as results from our daily and weekly newsletters. You can sign up for those here.
Miss last month’s countdown? It’s here.
