The Week Ending May 20
Topping this week's roundup of companies that came to win is Cisco for its latest software offensive and efforts to provide partners with incentives to adapt to a software-centric world.
Also making the list were startup Kinvey for its innovative service that links mobile apps with SAP ERP data, NetSuite for evolving its channel program to modernize the way partners are evaluated and recognized, OpenStack startup Platform9 for launching its own channel program, and all 472 women named to this year's CRN Women of the Channel list.
Not everyone in the IT industry was making smart moves this week, of course. For a rundown of companies that were unfortunate, unsuccessful or just didn't make good decisions, check out this week's 5 Companies That Had A Rough Week roundup.
