DENVER – Aug 13, 2015 – Platte River Networks has announced that they have been recognized by UBM Channel as a member of CRN’s fifth annual elite Next-Gen 250 list. It is an annual list of North American solution providers that are setting the pace in meeting customers’ ever-evolving IT needs. Who offer, or even specialize, in emerging technologies and so, have the potential to greatly impact the channel in the near future. This marks the third year in a row that Platte River Networks has been chosen for this elite list and the fourth time in five years.
The channel today is undergoing seismic shifts as new technologies such as cloud computing, software-defined networking, hyper-converged infrastructure and big data reshape the IT industry. While the channel overall has felt the impact of these technology advances, some solution providers are ahead of the curve when it comes to transforming their businesses to meet demands for such emerging technologies.
And so we present the 2015 CRN Next-Gen 250, the annual list of solution providers that are setting the pace for the rest of the channel in meeting customers’ ever-evolving IT needs. These are the solution providers that offer, or even specialize, in emerging technologies and so have the potential to greatly impact the channel in the near future.
All solution providers on the Next-Gen 250 list are selected through research, vendor and analyst interviews, and CRN editorial coverage. These companies have successfully transformed themselves by adding new technologies, services and skills to their business practices.
“The Next-Gen 250 list recognizes IT providers who successfully guide companies through the ever-changing technology landscape,” noted Brent Allshouse, CFO, Platte River Networks. “We are so proud to be recognized yet again for consistently delivering what our customers want, need and deserve.”
