Zoom’s massive contact center acquisition drew eyeballs, but other big purchases captured the channel’s attention.

The world’s biggest B2B tech companies announced acquisitions that could impact partners.

A wide variety of IT and telecom companies drew eyeballs with consolidation last month. AT&T announced a surprising partnership around 5G. Microsoft added a security provider to its portfolio. And Zoom took the cloud communications world by storm (again) with its acquisition of Five9.

Our M&A roundup also features partners, including a couple MSPs and an agent.

Our well of M&A news overflowed so much that we couldn’t possibly cover everything. For example, Platinum Equity finalized its Ingram Micro acquisition.  And Broadcom’s potential acquisition of analytics software provider SAS Institute sputtered out.  Check out the images above to see channel-impacting M&A from the last month.
