SCHAUMBURG, Ill.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Network Data Systems, a provider of customized IT infrastructure solutions, announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named NDS to its 2017 Managed Service Provider (MSP) 500 list in the Elite 150 category. This annual list recognizes North American solution providers with cutting-edge approaches to delivering managed services. Their offerings help companies navigate the complex and ever-changing landscape of IT, improve operational efficiencies, and maximize their return on IT investments.
In today’s fast-paced business environments, MSPs play an important role in helping companies leverage new technologies without straining their budgets or losing focus on their core business. CRN’s MSP 500 list shines a light on the most forward-thinking and innovative of these key organizations.
The list is divided into three categories: the MSP Pioneer 250, recognizing companies with business models weighted toward managed services and largely focused on the SMB market; the MSP Elite 150, recognizing large, data center-focused MSPs with a strong mix of on-premise and off-premise services; and the Managed Security 100, recognizing MSPs focused primarily on off-premise, cloud-based security services.
“NDS is honored to be included in CRN’s Elite 150 list of managed service providers,” said Wayne Dumas, NDS Senior Director of Managed Services. “Our recognition was a byproduct of our mature processes, tools and an integrated, talented team that provides complete lifecycle consulting and managed services. Our customers demand best in class on premise, private cloud and public cloud solutions - all which continue to grow at a rapid rate as we mature new products and services.”
“Managed service providers play an increasingly important role in the day-to-day operations of businesses across North America,” said Robert Faletra, CEO of The Channel Company. “MSPs help organizations streamline their spending, effectively allocate limited resources, and benefit from advanced expertise in the latest technologies. We congratulate the service providers on CRN’s 2017 MSP500 list, who have continually succeeded in meeting their customers’ changing needs and help them get the most out of their IT investments.”
The MSP500 list will be featured in the February 2017 issue of CRN and online at www.CRN.com/msp500.
