The Week Ending Nov. 10
Topping this week's roundup of companies that came to win is Dell EMC for taking on rival NetApp with its new midrange all-flash storage systems, backed up by a new customer loyalty program.
Also making the list are HPE Aruba for surpassing rival Cisco in a Gartner "critical capabilities" report, Intel for a savvy hire that boosts its graphics chips and edge computing efforts, Unitrends for launching a new partner program and appointing a new channel chief, and Commvault for aiding customers in the all-important data privacy and compliance realm with a new portfolio of analytical applications.
And, as a bonus, applause for three companies for advancing the state of Internet of Things security in the channel.
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.
