Dallas, TX (PRWEB) February 20, 2014
Lumenate Technologies, LP (Lumenate), today announced it has been named to CRN’s Managed Service Provider (MSP) 500 list as one of the MSP Elite 150. The annual list recognizes the top technology providers and consultants in North America whose cutting-edge approach to managed services puts end-user customers in the best position to improve efficiencies, cut costs and speed time to market for their own products and services.
In today's world of computing power, end users are barraged by options. CRN, the leading media outlet for vendors and solution providers attempting to understand sales and service channels, selected the top MSPs in order to bring clarity to the decision-making process.
This year, CRN’s MSP500 is broken down into three groups highlighting the MSP Elite 150, who are large data center-focused solution providers with a strong mix of on-premise professional services as well as off-premise services; the MSP Pioneer 250, who have a business model heavily weighted toward managed services focused on the small- and midsize-business market; and the MSP Hosting Service Provider 100, who own and operate their own data centers, providing a wide array of subscription-based outsourced services.
Lumenate specializes in delivering converged infrastructure solutions across three primary practice lines: storage, network and security. The firm is unique in that it can deliver these solutions as on premise, integrated solutions as well as an off-premise, on demand service. The company excels at what they call a flexible consumption model. Clearly it’s working. Lumenate was crowned this year's winner of the SP500 Storage Elite Award and also placed No. 2 on CRN's Fast Growth list with a two-year growth rate of 362 percent.
“The managed services landscape continues to evolve rapidly as organizations are discovering they can impact both bottom-line and top-line growth,” said Robert Faletra, CEO, The Channel Company. “When it comes to strong managed services and on-demand solutions, these companies are the industry’s proven leaders, showing just how they can change the game for their customers and we congratulate them on their success.”
According to Lumenate Vice President, ManageFlex Services, Gary Derheim: "We are seeing demand shift from inquiries about having Lumenate "manage" elements inside the IT environment to conversations about how to make specific industry applications faster, more reliable and without question, secure.” Derheim added: “Our investments in process and unique tools, specifically in the managed security services space, are enabling us to effectively solve these needs and deliver real value to our customers."
