Esteemed List Honors the Highest-Achieving IT Solution Providers in Vendor Certifications
PORTLAND, Ore. (March 23, 2020) – It’s official. CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has honored Structured and its extensive team of expert solution architects with a decade of recognition on the respected Tech Elite 250 list.
This annual list acknowledges the top tier of North American IT solution providers earning the highest number of advanced technical certifications from leading technology suppliers. These organizations differentiated themselves as premier solution providers, collecting multiple, top-level IT certifications, specializations, and partner program designations from the industry’s most prestigious technology providers.
“Information technology is a radically transformative industry, rich with capabilities to help organizations streamline processes, push goods and services to market more quickly, and deliver a superior customer experience,” said Structured President and CEO Ron Fowler. “We strive each day to identify and master the products and services that help our customers secure their enterprise, leverage the cloud, enable remote work, and see a greater return on their IT investments.”
“As businesses evolve so do their technology needs. We are gratified each year to stand among the nation’s technology elite by offering responsible guidance, forward-looking solutions and technical excellence to our customers,” Fowler added.
Each year, The Channel Company’s research group and CRN editors work together to identify the most customer-centric technical certifications in the North American IT channel. Solution providers that have earned these elite designations — enabling them to deliver exclusive products, services, and customer support — are then selected from a pool of online applicants.
“Solution providers that continue to pursue vendor certifications and extend their skill sets across various technologies and IT practices are proving their commitment to delivering the greatest business value to their customers through an incomparable level of service,” said Bob Skelley, CEO of The Channel Company. “Our CRN Tech Elite 250 list recognizes leading solution providers with expansive technical knowledge and esteemed certifications for exactly that reason.”
Ten years ago, with the advent of the iPad and the rise of tablets and smartphones, Structured ramped up its ability to deliver seamless and secure mobile experiences for businesses. Before that, it was virtualization and data center modernization to address waste and resource underutilization. More recently, as workloads shifted off-premises and organizations embraced the efficiencies of multicloud, Structured developed an entire division dedicated to helping customers safely and efficiently transition cloud-ready apps and data to private clouds, public cloud providers, or a mix of those services. Throughout, Structured maintained an intense concentration on its information security and compliance capabilities, honing its technical skill to keep up with a shifting threat landscape and continual evolution of regulatory compliance mandates.
“Being a top-tier solution provider means we focus on the training and certifications that bring the most value to our customers,” said Structured Chief Technology Officer Ty Trabosh. “Businesses rely on us to resolve complex issues through our cutting-edge information technology expertise and strong partner relationships. We’ve excelled in this space for nearly three decades and are always preparing for the next challenge.”
“Our engineers are dedicated to being top in their respective areas of expertise and take an incredible amount of pride in the certifications they acquire,” added Trabosh.
