Many solution providers today are transitioning to a services-led, recurring revenue business model. As businesses increasingly turn to managed service providers to fulfill their information technology needs, the channel is undergoing a major transformation as solution providers add a range of professional and IT hosting services to meet that demand.
This year CRN is launching its inaugural Managed Service Provider 500 list, recognizing the top technology providers and consultants in North America whose forward-thinking approach to providing managed services is changing the landscape of the IT channel. The MSP 500 is divided into three groups: The MSP Pioneer 250, the MSP Elite 150 and the MSP Hosting Service Provider 100.
The MSP Elite 150 is a list of channel companies who are large, data center-focused solution providers with a strong mix of on-premise professional services and off-premise services that provide a recurring revenue stream. The following slide show is a sample of 30 companies on the Elite list. To purchase the complete list, contact Laurie Condon (LCondon@thechannelcompany.com) on the East Coast and Nora Uriarte (NUriarte@thechannelcompany.com) on the West Coast.
