CRN, a brand of The Channel Company, has released its 2020 CRN Partner Program Guide. The guide consists of a list of technology vendors that have cloud-related partner programs that enable and accelerate the growth of solution providers’ cloud initiatives.
Each year, The Channel Company selects vendors for inclusion in the guide based on the quality of their partner programs. Each vendor is rated across several areas, including investment in their partner program, partner training, partner profitability, marketing programs and resources, education and support, sales support, and communication.
The CRN Partner Program Guide is used by managed services providers (MSPs), referral agents, and master agents to select the best vendors to work with to help them deliver cloud services to their customers.
“With the speed and complexity of technology today, solution providers need partners that can keep pace and support their growing business.” said Bob Skelley, CEO of The Channel Company. “CRN’s Partner Program Guide features insight into the strengths and benefits of each company’s program to identify those that truly support and drive positive change within the IT channel.”

iland has recently announced that it received a 5-star rating in the guide for the third consecutive year, which shows the company is among the top cloud technology suppliers in the IT channel.
