Some people in the channel and the broader technology industry will be glad to see 2022 in the rearview mirror. That’s because tech layoffs this fall have started to hit the community hard.

In just the last several weeks, we’ve reported on no fewer than 10 companies dumping employees. What’s rough is that many are still doing pretty well financially; instead, they are tightening their belts and “restructuring” in anticipation of a possible recession.

But it’s certainly not all bad news; in fact, most people you talk to are still bullish on the channel. One reason is the cloud, which is still growing at a fast clip. All eyes were on AWS last week when it hosted its re:Invent event in Las Vegas. You really wanted to read what CEO Adam Selipsky had to say. The same could be said for the Cisco Partner Summit earlier in the month. Many of you looked at our 16 takeaways from CPS 2022.

Those stories made our countdown, as did the debut of three new lists here at Channel Futures. We profiled leaders in networking and connectivity, communications and collaboration, and EMEA.

Furthermore, we once again tackled M&A, including speculation that RingCentral might buy 8×8.

Did you know that you’re driving this ship? Yep. We determine the top stories by looking at which articles you read most and what you click on in our newsletters. So what are you waiting for? Read some more! Oh, and if you haven’t signed up for any Channel Futures newsletters yet, you can do that here.

The slideshow above above features Channel Futures’ top stories from November. Tech layoffs, AWS re:Invent or Broadcom’s ongoing VMware acquisition efforts — which do you think was No. 1?

If you missed last month’s top stories countdown, it’s still there for you to read. Then be sure to watch for our top 20 stories of the year countdown coming later this month.
