From the AWS Marketplace collaboration with Dropbox to cash flow at SAP, this week encompassed an array of stories. The people behind them were equally as diverse.

Take Google Cloud’s Kevin Ichhpurani, for example. He’s been able to keep a low profile (few media interviews) but still get his message across about how he sees the channel in the year to come. We’re awaiting his public interview as “channel chief” later in the quarter.

Other corporate executives are quite chatty with journalists. Seth Penland, the CEO of Bluewave Technology Group, was this week with our editor, James Anderson. Bluewave is leveraging $75 million in capital to buy agents and build a technology advisory and life cycle management company. It’s one of the largest transactions ever within the channel partner community.

Although the Bluewave story was quite popular among our readers, it wasn’t the most-read article. That award went to an acquisition valued in the billions of dollars.

See our slideshow above to find out about that story and the individuals who made waves in the channel community this week. It’s our weekly top stories countdown.
