GT Global Services named to CRN’s Next-Gen 250

 

Second Annual Ranking Recognizes Up-and-Coming IT Solution Providers

Toronto, Ontario, September 14, 2012 – GT Global Services Inc. 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 emerging technologies, among them cloud computing, mobility, virtualization, unified communications, business analytics and business intelligence.

“GT has been quick to adapt to the changing technology landscape which is evolving more quickly than ever before,” said Paul Quenneville, GT’s President & CEO. “This disruptive environment can be challenging for our customers who look to us to advise them on the best approach to take. GT enables our customers to take advantage of the cost benefits of emerging technologies and ultimately assist them in differentiating their businesses.”

“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.”

A sample of the Next-Gen 250 list is available online at www.CRN.com. The entire 2012 database will be published only in CRN’s App for iPad, CRN Technology News.  This exciting new app will provide subscribers with exclusive content and full access to CRN’s premier Solution Provider lists.  For more information, visit www.CRN.com/Tablet.
