The Week Ending March 10
Topping this week's roundup of companies that came to win is Hewlett Packard Enterprise for its blockbuster deal to acquire flash technology developer Nimble Storage.
Also making the list are Cradlepoint for raising $89 million in financing and its plans to spend some of that money on channel initiatives, Extreme Networks for moving to acquire Avaya's networking business, Google and its new channel chief Bertrand Yansouni for outlining plans to step up the cloud company's channel game, and Puppet for its new partner portal and channel ambitions.
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.
