The NextGen 101 List Honors Partners Building MSP Practices
DECEMBER 9, 2020 (EAST HANOVER, NJ): SWK Technologies, Inc. has been named as one of the world’s premier managed service providers on the prestigious new 2020 Channel Futures NextGen 101 as part of its inaugural launch.
The NextGen 101, an MSP 501 list, features resellers, system integrators, consultants and other partners with recurring revenues from business models that are diversified beyond solely managed or cloud services.
The NextGen 101 recognizes diversified partners with growing MSP practices and annual recurring revenues under 20% of total revenue. These partners offer managed services, but they’re also resellers, system integrators and shops that do project work. These diversified shops deserve to be recognized for what they are in their own list, not just grouped together with pure-play MSPs.
Channel Futures is pleased to name SWK Technologies, Inc. to the NextGen 101.
“We are thrilled to be included in the NextGen 101 inaugural class,” said Bill Michaels, SWK’s VP of Operations for Managed Cloud Services. “This recognition highlights the time, resources and effort we have put into diversifying our value-add to ensure we are the top technology partner for our customers. From managing their hosted infrastructure to cybersecuring their applications in the cloud, we have helped our clients successfully pivot to the new normal introduced in 2020 by enabling them to seamlessly connect their technology silos.
Channel Partners and Channel Futures always wants to ensure that their partner communities are being recognized for what they do best and are therefore creating programs targeted toward their needs. The Nextgen 101 represents that effort.
“The NextGen 101 is designed specifically to honor partners dedicating resources to building out their practices — all while maintaining the integrity of their core businesses,” said Allison Francis, editor and content producer at Channel Partners and Channel Futures. “Maybe these partners will become the MSP powerhouses of the future. Maybe they’ll continue to expand their managed services capabilities while also devoting resources to core competencies. Or maybe they’ll become a new kind of hybrid partner that isn’t yet even on our radar. We can’t wait to see what these companies will do next, and we’re excited to honor them in a list of their very own.”
The data collected by the annual MSP 501 program drives Channel Partners’ and Channel Futures’ market intelligence insights, creating robust data sets and data-based trend reports that support our editorial coverage, event programming, community and networking strategies and educational offerings. It serves as a lynchpin to dozens of programs and initiatives.
