Channel people at Amplix, Shield IT, Veritas, Salesforce and more are among the individuals making waves this week. Channel Futures’ Channel People Making Waves showcases those who have made an impact over the last seven days. (See our slideshow above.) It’s also a recap of the most-read stories on our website.

It may be a new year but habits die hard, including for tech companies with a propensity to lay off workers. It appears 2022 has bled into 2023 as 10% of one cloud giant’s workforce will be reduced shortly. This particular layoff was our No.1 most-viewed story of the week.

However, it’s not all gloomy. IBM seems to have started the year on a positive note with its new IBM Partner Plus program. The focus: to expand its ecosystem. Read what partners have to say about how they’ve benefited from the initiative.

Finally, Channel Futures made several predictions lists going into 2023 for the various beats our editors cover. Our cloud outlook was among the more popular ones and our third most-read story of the week. To peruse the rest of our predictions, go here.

And that’s a wrap. If you didn’t catch our previous edition, you can find it here. Happy New Year!
