Company maintains status among preeminent solution providers, credits agility for longevity.
PORTLAND, Ore. (June 3, 2019) – For the ninth consecutive year, Structured is honored to announce its inclusion among the distinguished Solution Provider 500, an annual recognition of top North American solution provider firms bestowed by CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company.
The Solution Provider 500 is the industry standard for recognizing the highest performing technology integrators, strategic service providers and IT consultants. It is the industry’s predominant channel partner list, serving as a valuable resource for technology vendors looking to partner with premier solution providers.
“The information technology industry is transforming as much as it is transformative,” said Structured President and CEO Ron Fowler. “Structured’s longevity is due to our adaptability in the face of change. We strive to bring the most relevant and the most beneficial technologies and services to our customers each and every day.”
Recognizing that organizations need more guidance when it comes to everything-as-a-service (XaaS), multicloud initiatives, and cybersecurity, Structured intensified its focus on cloud services, managed services, and professional security consulting services in 2018. This effort has continued through 2019 and market demand for this kind of help shows no signs of slowing.
“Today, customers rightfully look to the cloud as a strategic lever enabling business agility,” said Structured Cloud Practice Managing Director Ruth Walters. “However, a complete ‘lift-and-shift’ of workloads is rarely the right answer. Instead, organizations need to carefully explore business processes – and the boundaries of their applications and databases – to ensure they take advantage of the economies of scale offered by the cloud while maintaining cost controls and maximizing security. Our team excels at helping companies explore these intricate business decisions and arrive at the right choice for their long-term success.”
CRN and The Channel Company also acknowledge that successful solution providers have been those most adept at navigating a sea change.
“The companies on this year’s list represent an incredible combined revenue of $320 billion, a sum that attests to their success in staying ahead of rapidly changing market demands,” said Bob Skelley, CEO of The Channel Company. “Congratulations to the solution provider organizations leading the way in digital transformation and the latest technology services.”
The complete 2019 Solution Provider 500 list is available online at www.CRN.com/SP500 and a sample from the list will be featured in the June issue of CRN Magazine.
