Also making the list are Oracle for its own plans to out-compete cloud service rivals, Internet of Things technology developer Itron for its deal to acquire IoT heavyweight Silver Spring Networks for $830 million, Ruckus Wireless for upgrading its partner program during a time of uncertainty for partners, and DevOps superstar HashiCorp for launching its first partner program.
