Just when we thought layoffs in tech were letting up, March “roared out” like a lion.

Job cuts at Kyndryl, Microsoft, Accenture and more cracked our list of top-read stories in March. But so did this article about a company that’s hiring, so it’s not all bad news.

Also on the good news front is what started as bad news. Avaya has greatly reduced its debt and should be coming out of Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection soon; this time, much more quickly than its previous bout with Chapter 11 six years ago.

Broadcom‘s VMware acquisition continues to draw your interest. Every regulatory action that delays the process pushes its closing date back several months.

MSPs, we have some research that landed in our top 20. At NerdioCon, Canalys analyst Jay McBain unveiled some of his top trends for managed service providers. And Channel Futures’ own survey of MSPs revealed some interesting factoids.

Our slideshow above counts down layoffs in tech and the rest of Channel Futures’ top 20 most-read stories in March. Get in on the act — sign up for our newsletters and you can influence what makes the list! We also consider online pageviews.

Miss last month’s countdown? It’s here.
