The Ones To Watch
This year's edition of the CRN Emerging Vendors list has more than 180 companies. And they all have something going for them, whether it's ground-breaking technology, visionary leadership, devotion to a channel strategy, or some combination of those and other qualities.
We've picked 25 here that we think the channel should especially be aware of. Some offer particularly unique, innovative technologies that have the potential to remake the segment of the IT industry in which they compete. Others we've selected because of their devotion to the channel. Many are just a year or two beyond their start -- a few are just getting off the launch pad and barely on anyone's radar -- while some are more established and already upsetting the status quo.
Who knows where they'll be tomorrow.
