Cima Solutions Group Named to Managed Service Provider 500 List by CRN
Company Recognized for Exemplary Approach to Delivery of Managed IT Services
Lewisville, Texas—February 10, 2015
Cima Solutions Group, an emerging cloud services broker and value added reseller, announced today it has earned recognition on The Channel Company’s 2015 CRN Managed Service Provider (MSP) 500 list as one of the Pioneer 250. This annual list distinguishes the top technology providers and consultants in North America whose leading approach to managed services enables their customers to improve operational efficiencies, elicit greater value from their IT investments, and successfully leverage technology to achieve greater competitive advantage.
In today’s world of outsourced IT, the expertise of MSPs has become increasingly important to organizations. The plethora of choices in terms of consumption and procurement of technology can become overwhelming. To help facilitate companies’ selection and adoption of managed services and providers, CRN, the leading media outlet for technology vendors and solution providers who serve end-user customers, has identified the top 500 MSPs.
This year, CRN’s industry‐focused directory highlights the Top 500 MSPs in three categories: 100 Hosting Providers who are experienced in providing mainly off-premise, or cloud-based, services; 150 Elite Service Providers who are large data center-focused solution providers with a strong mix of on-premise professional services as well as off-premise services; and 250 Progressive Service Providers who have a business model heavily weighted toward managed services geared toward the small and midsize business market.
Cima’s inclusion on the prestigious list coincides with its 10 year anniversary and release of RightCloud Service Exchange, a full service cloud brokering software suite that addresses the entire IT value chain: assess, compare, design, procure, provision, operate, and control as well as the new area of broker operations. RightCloud Service Exchange, powered by Gravitant cloudMatrix coupled with IBM Cloud Orchestrator, is a cloud software suite that presents the best cloud service provider options based on workload requirements, providing all the tools needed for the Cloud Administrator role.
“2015 celebrates Cima’s 10 year anniversary,” said John Alday, CEO of Cima Solutions Group. “Cima continues to embrace new technology in an effort to provide continuous improvement to our clients.”
“The allure of Everything-as-a-Service to organizations is largely rooted in the appeal of predictable operational expenses, cost-cutting, resource allocation and access to on-demand/pay-as-you-go technology. Therein lies a great need for the expertise of managed service providers,” said Robert Faletra, CEO, The Channel Company. “We congratulate the managed service providers who have engineered, or re-engineered, their businesses to deliver the services their customers rely on for future growth and ongoing success.”
Coverage of the MSP500 will be featured in the February 2015 issue of CRN and online at www.CRN.com.
