The fast-moving nature of the IT industry means that sometimes channel executives miss some of the biggest channel stories through a lack of time or inclination to dig through the archives of CRN and other news sites.
With that in mind, CRN is rounding up all the major stories to hit vendors, distributors and resellers in an easy-to-read PDF each month.
The October round-up includes news on Agilitas, Dell, IBM, Lenovo and Xerox as well as a host of distributors and resellers, including Tech Data, Beta Distribution, Computacenter, Insight, Pure Technology and SoftwareONE.
