The Biggest Solution Provider In Each State In 2023: The Solution Provider 500

Rick Whiting

CRN breaks out which solution providers in each U.S. state and Canadian province generate the most revenue and how many of this year’s Solution Provider 500 are based in each state and province.

State Of The Channel

While the IT industry’s biggest vendors are generally clustered in specific regions like Silicon Valley and Texas or cities like Seattle and New York, solution providers that supply IT systems and services to businesses and organizations can be found pretty much everywhere throughout the country since they often are where their customers are.

As part of the 2023 CRN Solution Provider 500 – our annual ranking of the largest solution providers doing business in North America – we provide a look at how many solution providers and strategic service providers are based in each state (and Canadian province) and identify the largest channel company headquartered in each.

The concentration of solution providers tends to align with state populations and, hence, states with more businesses that need IT products and services. California, the most populated state in the U.S., has 54 Solution Provider 500 companies based there. The Golden State is followed by other populous states such as New York (42 Solution Provider 500 companies) and Texas (27 Solution Provider 500 companies). Virginia boasts 39 Solution Provider 500 companies, many serving the IT needs of the U.S. federal government and all the companies that serve it.

The following slideshow includes the biggest solution provider on the 2023 Solution Provider 500 list in 43 U.S. states and Washington D.C. (There are no Solution Provider 500 companies headquartered in Alaska, Delaware, Hawaii, Montana, Rhode Island, West Virginia or Wyoming.) The slideshow also includes the largest Solution Provider 500 companies based in the Canadian provinces of Alberta, British Columbia, Manitoba, Ontario, Quebec and Saskatchewan.

The slideshow also breaks out how many of this year’s Solution Provider 500 companies are based in each state and province.

As part of the 2023 Solution Provider 500 project, we also provide a ranking of the 25 largest solution providers on this year’s list and a roundup of the 35 newcomers to this year’s list.
