Channel People Making Waves focuses on seven individuals who made a difference in the community this week, including those at AWS, BlackBerry and more. Our picks coincide with the most-read stories of the week.

Over the last seven days, two stories received ongoing coverage from the Channel Futures team. Both involved major acquisitions, including one deal worth $61 billion, a landmark for the industry.

In other news, it seems as if MSSPs are taking a more prominent role in the channel. The managed security services marketplace is expected to skyrocket through 2030 and companies such as BlackBerry are taking advantage. Find out what Colleen McMillan, BlackBerry’s vice president of global channel sales, had to say about that.

Also, what are the characteristics of vendors that are valuable to partners? We explore that question in our coverage of the MSP roundtable as part of the 2022 Channel Partners Conference & Expo. It was one of our top stories. To read about the individuals behind the news, click on the slideshow above.
