Talkin’ Cloud 100: Will Your Cloud Service Chops Earn You a Spot?
Since 2010, Channel Futures has published the Talkin’ Cloud 100, recognizing 100 top cloud service providers (CSPs) helping to transform their customers’ businesses through innovative cloud services and support.
Back then, cloud services were deliciously simple compared to the complex ecosystem we see today. No matter the stripe of channel partner, whether VAR, agent, MSP or systems integrator, cloud services are now woven into the very fabric of the channel. In the list of things driving digital transformation, cloud services take a top spot.
That’s why we’ve been honoring cloud service providers for the last eight years. The TC 100 looks to recognize CSPs constantly looking toward new opportunities, continually reinventing their processes and approaches, experimenting with new IP and anticipating industry trends. The most impressive cloud service providers stay ahead of the curve, know their buyer and have strong relationships with best-of-breed vendors. Here at Channel Futures, we’re confident that our readers represent the world’s very best cloud service providers, and we think they’re worthy of recognition.
This year’s survey covers SaaS-based services, ideal customers and most-popular solution providers. We want to know about your niche markets, your workforce, and the biggest challenges you’re facing. While we do require details surrounding revenue, we keep all of this information confidential, and focus our attention on applicants’ percentage of recurring revenue, which is weighted heavily in the editorial team’s final decisions.
The 2018 survey opens Friday, Nov. 2, and is open to channel partners of all types that use the magic of cloud services to get their customers where they want to go. We encourage all of our readers to apply.
Eight years ago, cloud services was a nebulous thing, an undefined promise of digital transformation to come; today, it’s the backbone of the modern channel. Apply today and take your place in the evolving history of CSPs.
Applications open Nov. 2. Stay tuned to Channel Futures for more details and a link to apply.
