LEXINGTON, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Integration Partners announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Integration Partners to its 2018 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-premises and off-premises services; and the Managed Security 100, recognizing MSPs focused primarily on off-premise, cloud-based security services.
“In 2018 managed services is no longer about just the physical infrastructure being up, down, or sideways. It is about how effectively that infrastructure, whether on premise, in a collocation, or the cloud supports all the applications which drive any business goal. Integration Partners’ diverse portfolio is uniquely positioned to give the customer management insight into their environment no matter where their business applications are deployed,” said Jeffrey McGovern, Principle Architect of Integration Partners.
“Managed service providers have become integral to the success of businesses everywhere, both large and small,” said Bob Skelley, CEO of The Channel Company. “Capable MSPs enable companies to take their cloud computing to the next level, streamline spending, effectively allocate limited resources and navigate the vast field of available technologies. The companies on CRN’s 2018 MSP 500 list stand out for their innovative services, excellence in adapting to customers’ changing needs and demonstrated ability to help businesses get the most out of their IT investments.”
“Technologies supporting applications deployed on premise are managed differently than those deployed on a cloud service provider’s infrastructure and as a provider you need to recognize that. Customers need intelligent insights to help them identify anomalies within the system as well as a partner to help them establish measurable business metrics to determine the effectiveness of their technology strategies especially within hybrid environments,” said Jeffrey McGovern, Principle Architect of Integration Partners.
