The Triple Crown is one of the most elusive awards in baseball. For a hitter, it’s the ultimate culmination of accuracy, power, and MVP status. While we aren’t donning any cleats here at Datapipe, we’re honored to receive an equally esteemed award in our field. This month, CRN, a brand of The Channel Company recognized us as a 2017 Triple Crown Award winner.
Each year, CRN identifies and ranks solution providers who are reaching new heights in the IT industry. These recognitions include the Solution Provider 500, which lists the largest solution providers in North America by revenue; the Fast Growth 150, which ranks the fastest-growing solution providers; and the Tech Elite 250, which recognizes solution providers that have received the highest level certifications from leading vendors.
Making one of these lists is exciting for a solution provider, and it’s something we’ve achieved time and again in years past. Gracing all three lists, however, is a first and a major accomplishment for Datapipe.
Across North America, a total of 40 solution providers received this honor, and we’re thrilled to be among them. To earn a Triple Crown Award, a company must have high enough revenue, record double- or triple-digit growth, and invest heavily in top certifications.
We’ve also steadily climbed in our Solution Provider 500 ranking, for the first time breaking the top 100 this year. We credit this to our commitment to understanding our clients’ unique business challenges and objectives, which has allowed us to keep expanding our skillsets and offerings. That commitment to excellence has been a major reason for our nine straight appearances on the CRN MSP 500 list.
Our ranking of #67 in the Fast Growth 150 list is also a new high. We’ve worked hard to achieve AWS Microsoft Workloads and Storage Competency Status, and we also have eleven Microsoft Partner Competencies for Managed Services across a wide range of Microsoft technologies.
Finally, our inclusion on the 2017 Tech Elite 250 list is a testament to our partnerships with industry leading organizations like AWS, Microsoft, Equinix, Oracle, and VMware. In addition to the certifications above, we’re also an AWS Premier Consulting Partner, an Equinix Platinum Partner, and a VMware Premier Service Provider. We know each customer fits a different mold, and our strategic partnerships allow us to provide the solution that works best for each unique company.
While these awards are always an honor to receive, we won’t rest on our laurels. We plan to continue providing the service our customers have come to rely on while further developing innovative solutions for the enterprise.
