FRAMINGHAM, Mass., Oct. 28, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The Channel Company's CRN today highlights its much anticipated annual lists published in the third quarter, featuring the 100 People You Don't Know But Should, Network Connectivity Services Partner Program Guide, the Next-Gen 250 and the Fast Growth 150. These prestigious CRN lists identify the best of the best among the IT and channel industry. Highlights of the third quarter include:
-- 100 People You Don't Know But Should: The third annual list aims to recognize people working within vendor channel organizations that are not necessarily in the spotlight but are working hard behind the scenes to make good things happen for their solution provider partners. Honorees were chosen by the CRN editorial staff with input from vendor, distribution and solution provider executives. Individuals were chosen based on their impact on vendor channel strategies, initiatives and programs, and on the level of visibility they have with channel partners of their own companies, and the channel at large. -- Network Connectivity Services Partner Program Guide: A valuable resource for solution providers to easily find vendors that have products and programs in this thriving technology area. In order to qualify for participation in the Network Connectivity Services Partner Program Guide, companies had to have a partner program in place for the IT channel. -- Next-Gen 250: The annual list highlights up-and-coming solution providers that take a smart and different approach to solution selling and integration. Next-Gen 250 honors those solution providers zeroing in on lucrative and emerging technologies, among them cloud computing, mobility, virtualization, unified communications, business analytics and business intelligence. -- Fast Growth 150: The annual list features the fastest-growing solution providers in the technology industry based on two years' growth of net sales from calendar year 2010 to calendar year 2012.
"As the channel's de facto resource for the last 30 years, we understand the value our editorial lists serve in helping our fellow channel champions navigate the transforming IT landscape," said Robert Faletra, CEO, The Channel Company.
