Top IT Channel Marker blogs for September 2009

The IT services buying spree was center stage in September, and blog posts around Dell buying Perot Systems and reports of an HP reorg were the most-read posts for September.

1. Big changes for spawn of Perot
Within days of Dell pledging to buy Perot Systems for $3.9 billion, HP dropped the EDS moniker from its newly acquired services arm, slapping HP Enterprise Services over it.

3. Huge HP changes on deck

4. Microsoft starts testing Office Web Apps

5. Two developers make the most of the VMware ecosystem
