There are still some cloud services providers (CSPs), cloud brokers, aggregators and integrators waiting until the last minute to fill out the fourth-annual Talkin' Cloud 100 survey -- but why "kick the can down the road"?
Our (unscientific) poll last week asked readers about their participation in this year's Talkin' Cloud Top 100 CSP survey. The majority of respondents, who we'll try to persuade to think differently, voted in the negative (58 percent). While the numbers may be close, we'd like to see a flip in the vote in the upcoming weeks.
It's simple: In order to be considered, fill out our survey (which can be found here) and submit your responses on or before May 2, 2014. The survey is open to all CSPs and cloud channel partners worldwide.
To rank the world's top 100 CSPs, we use various metrics, including annual recurring cloud revenues, seats under management, growth rates and more. Have no fear -- company financial information (where indicated in the survey) will remain confidential. Survey results will be published in Q2 2014.
And the best part of all, once you complete and submit the survey, no further action on your part is required. In the meantime, take a look at last year's list to learn more about your competition.
