Channel People Making Waves is once again bringing the most-read stories on Channel Futures to the forefront. Individuals at Splunk, KPMG, Microsoft, Triella and more made our list this week.

When it comes to layoff news, it’s not uncommon to hear outspoken former employees discuss their distress publicly. However, when Ingram Micro decided to lay off some of its workers, not only did we hear from employees but we also heard from the owner of an MSP who said she felt the ripple of effects from the cuts. Pamela Miranda of MSP Triella, Ontario, Canada, said that she hoped Ingram Micro wouldn’t lay off her new account rep because “he’s a real go-getter.” Her concerns made it to the No.1 story of the week.

Microsoft is perhaps setting a trend with its Microsoft AI Cloud Partner Program. It has all the benefits of the Microsoft Cloud Partner Program but with new offerings and capabilities specific to AI. It’s likely other companies will follow the tech giant’s lead.

That’s not the only Microsoft news. Splunk has unveiled a new partnership to build its enterprise security and observability offerings on Microsoft Azure. Splunk officials said it was about creating a partner-first culture at the company in three ways. View our slideshow above to learn how and to see the most-read stories of the last seven days.

And that’s a wrap for Channel People Making Waves. In case you didn’t catch our previous edition, you can find it here.
