EXPERTS AGREE: THE CLOUD PLAYS A MAJOR ROLE IN A DIGITAL TRANSFORMATION. But where do you start? Cloud computing can deliver benefits to any business unit, but many companies choose to start their cloud journey with unified communications (UC), which can deliver benefits across the organization, to every business unit. Not only is UC a good fit for the cloud due to its scalability, elasticity, and flexibility, but also communications improvement is an ongoing goal for many companies, whether it’s company-to-customer in the contact center, company-to-partner, or employee-to-employee for internal collaboration.

Scale Computing has combined servers, storage, and virtualization into a single solution to make IT infrastructure easier for organizations of every size. Whether organizations have one IT administrator or hundreds, Scale Computing’s HC3 hyperconverged infrastructure eliminates complexity, lowers costs, and frees up management time. Using an appliance-based approach to virtualization, Scale Computing’s HC3 infrastructure solution is faster to deploy, easier to manage, and allows organizations to scale seamlessly as they grow. This invitation-only survey of each vendor’s top channel partners, conducted by The Channel Company’s research team, included over 3,000 solution providers across North America. Survey participants were asked to rate their satisfaction with 66 vendor partners. Scores were given in 25 major product categories, based on performance across four criteria: product innovation, support, partnership, and managed and cloud services. "We are thrilled to recognize these vendors who continue to go above and beyond to develop and nurture successful vendor-channel partner relationships by delivering best-in-class product and service offerings,” said Blaine Raddon, CEO, The Channel Company. “CRN’s Annual Report Card Awards go further than just highlighting our winners, they also offer deep insights into channel opinions and provide vendors with actionable feedback to implement into their channel strategies going forward.
