BELLEVUE, WA – August 27, 2012 - Explore Consulting, a professional services company that provides innovative technology solutions for managing business data and a cost-effective approach to completely outsourced IT in the cloud, today announced it has been recognized by UBM Channel as a member of CRN’s second annual Next-Gen 250 list. The CRN Next-Gen 250 highlights up and coming VARs that have recently entered the market with a smart and different approach to solution selling and integration.
This Next-Gen 250 list is a snapshot of solution providers who are zeroing in on lucrative and emerging technologies, among them cloud computing, mobility, virtualization, unified communications, business analytics and business intelligence.
“Our second 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 our 10 plus years of experience in the space have given us a great head start.”
“The channel is constantly evolving as existing models are being tested and new ones are created,” said Kelley Damore, VP, Editorial Director, UBM Channel. “All the companies on this year’s list have only been in business since 1999. Some have transformed their business to meet the demands of a changing market. Others didn't have the baggage of transitioning from hardware to services to recurring revenue and have been able to build a business on an entirely new model and leverage new technology platforms. Regardless of how they got here, we congratulate each company for making this year’s list.”
