The annual list honors up-and-coming technology solution providers who have adapted their businesses in unique ways to meet market demands for emerging technologies such as unified communications, managed services, virtualization, and cloud computing.
The Next-Gen 250 solution providers, each in business for less than 15 years, have embraced pressing market challenges in ways that clearly distinguish them as today’s trailblazers and tomorrow’s leaders. A NetSuite powerhouse, Explore Consulting was in the cloud before many of its peers. Founded in 2001, Explore doesn’t stop with just NetSuite. It also takes Microsoft and Amazon.com cloud solutions to market, and has also become the go-to technology provider of National Football Scouting and the NFL Scouting Combine.
“Our inclusion on CRN’s Next-Gen 250 list is a credit to Explore’s commitment to innovative technology solutions and services.” said CEO Steve Jones. “As more organizations turn to the cloud, unique value added offerings are critical to being a successful reseller and more than 12 years of experience in the space have given us a great head start.”
“IT is undergoing a transformation today, with new technologies, new delivery models and new demands being placed upon the integrators tasked with architecting the technology solutions businesses need,” said Robert Faletra, CEO of The Channel Company, publisher of CRN. “The CRN Next-Gen 250 recognizes the up-and-comers among the solution provider community who have found innovative ways to address these business challenges and recognizes them as the next generation of leaders in the IT channel. We are pleased to be able to honor the organizations named in this prestigious list, and CRN editors will be following their progress in the years to come.”
