The Week Ending Oct. 13
Topping this week's roundup of companies that came to win is Dell Technologies, which unveiled ambitious plans to launch an Internet of Things Division to develop new IoT products and services, and a new channel program to help solution providers get into the fast-growing IoT market.
Also making the list are Extreme Networks for a significant upgrade of its channel program, TekLinks for expanding its presence in the IT security arena with a new cybersecurity practice, VMware CEO Pat Gelsinger's defense of virtualization versus containers at the Best of Breed Conference, and Puppet for debuting a raft of new products that bring its software automation expertise to the application development and DevOps realm.
