Channel people at AWS, Elastic, Nextiva, the U.K. government 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.

First up, Park Place Technologies. The company has acquired 22 firms since 2016 and isn’t stopping in 2023. There are several economic conditions driving Park Place’s recent push for deals with IT services providers. Read more about that in our lineup.

Next, Broadcom’s CEO has faced a lot of heat about whether the company will raise VMware’s product prices or neglect SMB customers. We’ve all been reassured they will not. However, some partners are still uneasy. Yet, others are more confident about the future. Get the range of reactions in the reporting by our editor James Anderson.

Lastly, our No. 1 story details the casualties of another layoff in the channel. A prominent official was let go from her role as head of partner development at Nextiva. The company says it has laid off 14% of its workforce across several departments. They weren’t alone. Another organization’s layoff made our No. 3 story of the week.

From AWS to Elastic, that’s a wrap. And, if you didn’t catch our previous edition, you can find it here.
