Manhasset, New York – (The Hosting News) – August 23, 2007 – Web hosting and managed services firm, Verio, was recently recognized by CMP Technology’s VARBusiness magazine, as one of North America’s top technology integrators. The 500 companies are the leading revenue producers among solution provider organizations in North America.
The list’s ranking is based on companies’ gross worldwide revenue of hardware and software sales, as well as earning from professional and managed IT services.
Dennis Boyle, Chief Operating Officer for Verio remarked, ”Solution providers and service providers are a driving force in not only the U.S., but worldwide economies, and Verio is honored to be included among such a list of distinguished technology businesses. As this year’s VAR500 indicates, the midmarket continues to grow in importance, and Verio remains committed to delivering high-value, functional services that enable small and midmarket businesses, including our solution provider partners.”
Robert C. DeMarzo, Editorial Director at CMP Channel added, ”The companies on the VARBusiness 500 list play critical roles in providing the proper IT strategies and systems to corporations and institutions to help drive business forward. We congratulate them on their success.”
To complete the 2007 ranking of the 500 largest North American solution providers, system integrators, VARs and IT consultants, companies were asked to complete an online questionnaire to determine prequalification. Between February and April 2007, VARBusiness conducted extensive research and analyzed the data. Independent data sourcing (e.g., SEC filings, annual reports, etc.) also was conducted. Finalists were ranked according to their fiscal year 2006 revenue, based only on their reseller-related services business.
The complete listing of the VARBusiness 500 was published in the June 11 issue of the monthly business magazine that provides strategic insight for technology integrators. Verio placed number 204 in the current VARBusiness 500 ranking.
In addition, Verio has scheduled its inaugural viaVerio Partner Summit at The Venetian Resort and Casino in Las Vegas Nevada, to take place from September 20-21, 2007. The theme of the two day conference, ”Welcome to the Services Evolution,” will address how solution provider partners can leverage online business enablement services for their customers, as well as for their own businesses. Attendees will be offered unparalleled exposure to top industry practitioners and thought leaders, and granted exclusive previews of key product developments and initiatives. Verio’s Partner Summit will take place immediately following Tier1 Research’s 2007 Hosting Transformation Summit, laying the foundation for industry trends and predictions.
Event keynote speakers include Jeff Kaplan, founder and managing director of strategic consulting firm THINKstrategies, who will speak to solution provider attendees on the progression of their businesses from providing web hosting to the business services that are increasingly required by their customers.
