It’s that time again when we spend time with friends and family and celebrate the holidays. But before your much deserved break, let’s take a look back at the top channel stories of 2022.

First, if you are a regular reader of our monthly top story recaps, you know how this works. We determine what cracks the top 20 countdown by combining online pageviews with click-throughs from our weekly newsletters. (By the way, you can sign up for those here.)

In the slideshow above, you’ll find some of the most impactful stories of the year. But they won’t all be there. Some are simply those that caught your eye — in some cases, surprisingly.

You’re going to find a lot of merger and acquisition activity in our countdown. There were those that happened – Telarus buying TCG – and those that didn’t – Cisco-Splunk – or haven’t yet — Broadcom-VMware.

You’re also going to read a lot about the big cloud providers. Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud all commanded your attention in 2023.

Furthermore, we have controversy, including “scare tactics” concerning POTS replacement. And some of our most popular content included annual lists such as Channel Influencers of the Year, the MSP 501 and our DE&I 101.

But we don’t want to give it all away. Check the 20 images above to see which stories you pegged as tops in the channel in 2022.
