Carahsoft is honored to be recognized for our outstanding performance by the industry, trade press and, most importantly, our partners.
RESTON, Va. –- June 26, 2012 –- Carahsoft Technology Corp., the trusted government IT solutions provider, today announced that it has been recognized for the seventh consecutive year by UBM Channel through inclusion on CRN's 2012 Solution Provider 500 list. The Solution Provider 500, formally known as the VAR500, ranks the highest revenue producing solution providers in the IT channel.
Carahsoft made its first appearance on the list in 2006 at #399 and soared to #32 in 2012 based on its 2011 revenue of $1.07 billion.
“We are seeing significant growth in the public sector’s demand for cloud, virtualization, cybersecurity and big data solutions in particular,” said Craig P. Abod, Carahsoft president. “We are expanding our business units--in many cases doubling the staff and support we make available— to ensure we are able to deliver the quality, cost-effective solutions our government customers, technology partners, service providers and resellers have come to expect.”
The Solution Provider 500 ranking is based on revenue size, and considers each company’s forwardthinking approach to the channel. In particular, the Solution Provider 500 selection panel sought to recognize companies that are building out practices around the data center and virtualization while offering software integration and application development skills. Revenue size is determined by the amount of annual products and services sold over the course of 2011.
“The organizations listed in this year’s Solution Provider 500 list are today’s true integration innovators who generate high revenues by putting their customers’ needs first,” said Kelley Damore, Vice President and Editorial Director at UBM Channel. “Their primary role is to engineer ways to leverage technology solutions that help customers exceed their sales goals, drive client satisfaction, expand internationally or accelerate new product development. In essence, they are today’s IT integration leaders for middle market and enterprise customers. We congratulate Carahsoft for making this year’s list and look forward to covering their continued success.”
