The Ones To Watch

The CRN 2016 Emerging Vendors list has more than 100 companies. They are here because they have developed groundbreaking technology, are challenging established leaders in specific segments of the IT industry, have visionary leadership – or some combination of those and other characteristics.

Here, we present 25 startups that we think the channel should especially be aware of, either because of the innovative technologies they offer, their devotion to the channel or their potential to remake the IT space in which they compete. Some have been around for a few years (2010 was the cutoff founding date to make the list) and are already upsetting the status quo, while others are just a year or two out of the gate and barely on anyone's radar -- but should be.

The complete CRN Emerging Vendors list can be found at We'll also post slideshows with select companies in specific technology categories including security, storage and big data/business analytics.
