The Week Ending Dec. 1
Topping this week's roundup of companies that came to win is Amazon Web Services, which demonstrated its commitment to the channel with its rebranded partner program, new technology competency certifications for partners and a number of new cloud services.
Also making the list are Dell, for putting two channel advocates in key executive management positions; Siemens for launching a new channel program to assist partners in the industrial IoT arena; Hewlett Packard Enterprise for an alliance with ABB that strengthens its hand in the industrial IoT space; and APC and Ingram Micro for a partnership that brings data center control technology to solution providers.
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 Five Companies That Had A Rough Week roundup.
