How 10 VARs Became Cloud Computing Superstars


Champion Solutions Group

Boca Raton, Fla.-based Champion Solutions Group has accelerated its cloud transformation with the acquisition of MessageOps, the maker of 365 Command, a set of Web-based administration, reporting and monitoring tools to manage Microsoft's Office 365.

Cloud services were already the fastest growing part of Champion. The MessageOps deal, however, gives the company unique proprietary cloud services assets.

Champion CEO Chris Pyle says he is maintaining MessageOps as a separate operation, providing investment capital to help the unit develop new cloud offerings. In addition, Champion is now offering the MessageOps 365 Command to other solution providers.
