The CRN Test Center's Tech Innovator Award program recognizes companies for outstanding innovation in products developed for the enterprise. Hardware and software products from 18 categories are evaluated based on their ability to increase worker productivity and reduce cost and complexity for solution providers, IT departments and end users through innovation and technical advancement. When more than one innovative product was identified in a category, CRN editors evaluated their respective channel programs and other factors to break the tie, giving the other product(s) an honorable mention. Here are the 2014 Tech Innovator Award winners along with those receiving honorable mentions. See additional details about each winning company and their products in our Tech Innovators Databank
Winning companies were invited to attend The Channel Company's NexGen Cloud Conference in San Diego in December to present their winning products for consideration as the 2014 Editors' Choice.
