The Best Of The Best
CRN’s Products of the Year awards for 2020 honor the very best partner-friendly products and services that launched over the past year—as chosen by solution providers themselves. To get things started, our editors selected product finalists in 23 key technology categories for the IT channel among offerings from September 2019 to September 2020. The categories ranged from big data, to cloud infrastructure and collaboration, to security, servers and storage. We then asked solution providers to choose winners based on how the products rate on technology, revenue and profit opportunities, and customer demand.
The survey received more than 5,000 product ratings from solution providers, and the product receiving the highest overall score in each category was named the winner. Notably, several companies took home multiple top prizes in this year’s contest: Cisco (with three category wins) and Hewlett Packard Enterprise, Microsoft and Lenovo (with two category wins each).
What follows are the winners and finalists in CRN’s Products of the Year awards for 2020.
