The Most Innovative Products of 2012


The Biggest Thinkers In The Business

At UBM Channel's NexTI Conference in late October, resellers from far and wide gathered in Las Vegas to exchange ideas, network with fellow solution providers, acquire new skills and see demos of hardware and software developed by some of the most innovative companies in the world.

They also were on hand to witness the CRN Test Center's presentation of the Tech Innovator Awards, which recognize outstanding innovation in enterprise products developed and marketed by computer-product manufacturers, software developers and solution providers. For years, the Test Center has been honoring the industry's top manufacturers for enterprise products that increase productivity and reduce cost and complexity through innovation and advancement of technology. Here's a look at the winners, including the CRN Test Center's 2012 Editor's Choice for the most innovative product of the year.
