Corporate Technologies LLC Ranked Among Top 100 Cloud Services Providers

4th Annual Talkin’ Cloud 100 Report Identifies  World’s Top Cloud Computing Companies in the IT Channel

October 21, 2014: Corporate Technologies LLC ranks among the world’s Top 100 Cloud Service Providers (CSPs), according to Penton Media’s fourth-annual Talkin’ Cloud 100 report. The Top 100 CSPs generated more than $23.4 billion in combined cloud services revenues in 2013, up nearly 44 percent from what they reported the previous year. The full report is available now by visiting http://www.talkincloud.com/tc100.

In addition to honoring Corporate Technologies, this year’s Talkin’ Cloud 100 report profiles:

  • Cloud Services Providers: CSPs offer SaaS (software as a service), infrastructure as a service (IaaS) and/or PaaS (platform as a service) to partners/customers.
  • Cloud Services Brokerages: CSBs, or cloud brokers, recommend and resell multiple cloud services to customers, and often integrate those services.
  • Cloud Services Aggregators: CSAs, or cloud aggregators, typically offer a portal that allows VARs and MSPs to source multiple third-party cloud services for customers.
  • MSPs (Managed Service Providers) with cloud services expertise: MSPs proactively monitor and manage customers’ on-premises and cloud-based systems.
  • VARs (value-added resellers) with cloud services expertise: VARs offer a range of IT consulting, deployment, integration and management services to customers.

The Talkin’ Cloud 100 report is based on data from Talkin’ Cloud’s online survey, conducted January through May 2014. The Talkin’ Cloud 100 report recognizes top cloud service providers based on such metrics as annual cloud services revenue growth (both in actual dollars and in percentage growth rates).

“Penton and Talkin’ Cloud congratulate Corporate Technologies LLC,” said Charlene O’Hanlon, Senior Executive Editor and Executive Managing Editor of Talkin’ Cloud. “The Talkin’ Cloud 100 represents those companies leading the way in the cloud space at a critical point in the maturation of the market.”
