WAUKESHA, Wis.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--SoftwareONE, the leading software and cloud portfolio management provider, announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named SoftwareONE to its 2018 Fast Growth 150 list. The list is CRN’s annual ranking of North America-based technology integrators, solution providers and IT consultants that have experienced significant economic growth over the past two years. The companies recognized this year represent a remarkable combined total revenue of more than $50 billion.
“As more organizations move to the cloud they have started to recognize the critical need to manage costs,” said Lawrence Schwartz, CMO of SoftwareONE. “Our offerings are designed to help organizations reign in their costs as they transition to and host applications in the cloud. We are honored to be named to the Fast Growth 150 list.”
SoftwareONE’s growth can be attributed to many factors, including the launch and subsequent enhancements made to its PyraCloud platform, new partnerships, as well as the acquisition of UC Point for the purpose of enhancing and extending SoftwareONE’s unified communications service offerings. The growth of the public cloud services market – estimated to reach $186.4B by the end of 2018 – has also attributed to the growth of SoftwareONE’s services offerings as more companies transition to the cloud.
Security, of course, becomes paramount to a company’s strategy in relation to the cloud transition, and SoftwareONE has developed Security for Microsoft Azure and Security for Microsoft 365 to ensure our customers are fully protected as they move key business applications to the cloud. In addition, the expansion of our xSimple solutions (including AzureSimple, SAMSimple, BackupSimple, UCSimple and Simple for AWS) make it easier and more cost-effective for organizations to enter the cloud space on their time, at their budget.
“CRN’s 2018 Fast Growth 150 list features companies that are growing in an ever-changing, challenging market,” said Bob Skelley, CEO of The Channel Company. “As traditional solution providers are moving towards a services-focused business model, this extraordinary group have been able to successfully adapt; outperforming competitors and proving themselves as channel leaders. We are pleased to recognize these organizations and look forward to their continued success.”
