IT news and analysis outlet CRN recently released its 2020 Solution Provider 500, a ranking of the largest solution providers by revenue in North America. The Solution Provider 500 list is made up of established and emerging vendors as ranked by CRN. Because 500 is a large number of providers to look through, CRN also offers lists of the top 25 solution providers, as well as a list of newcomers. Though the CRN Solution Provider 500 is aimed at highlighting software vendors based on their profits, Solutions Review is most interested in highlighting the vendors that offer unique products and platforms for enterprise organizations. As such, we’ve read through the latest Solution Provider 500, available here, to analyze the trending cloud managed service providers (MSPs) we (and CRN) think matter most. For an even deeper breakdown of advanced cloud managed service providers, tools, and platforms, consult our popular Buyer’s Guide and Vendor Map.
