Forget former President Trump still claiming he won the 2020 election. There’s plenty of channel conflict and controversy involving SolarWinds, Alteryx, Zoom and RingCentral, and more.
New hires, changing channel programs, security breaches and M&A are typical Channel Futures fare. But there also are plenty of eye-opening controversies that draw you to the watercooler. There have been quite a few since our last roundup of channel conflict and controversy in November.
Recent hubbub involves a racially charged tweet costing Alteryx’s former CRO his job, the never-ending drama around the giant SolarWinds hack, and Zoom suing longtime partner RingCentral.
In addition, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) is gunning for Frontier Communications, creating new legal hassles after the company emerged from Chapter 11 bankruptcy last month. Furthermore, layoffs by Cisco, McAfee, VMware and more amid the pandemic had readers talking.
So kick back and click through the slides above. Revisit the controversies and conflicts that have impacted the channel over the past several months.
