Highlights of the second quarter include:


  • Big Data 100 – Hungry startups and established vendors are unleashing a flood of innovative technologies to help companies collect, manage and analyze big data. CRN's inaugural Big Data 100 list recognizes those companies across three categories—business analytics, data management, and infrastructure and services—that are meeting today's big data challenges head on.
  • Virtualization 50 – From server virtualization to virtual desktop infrastructure to network virtualization and more, CRN compiles a list of some of the movers and shakers in virtualization this year.
  • Women of the Channel – A list that grows each year—reaching 295 top achievers in 2013—the Women of the Channel list honors female executives across vendor channel organizations, distributors and solution providers for truly "paying it forward"—by reshaping channel programs to drive solution provider growth or revving up their own business as trusted advisers, all while giving back as mentors to the next generation of female leaders.
    • Power 100 – The Power 100 list recognizes an elite subset of the Women of the Channel based on their influence and exceptional achievements.
  • Solution Provider 500 – The top solution provider organizations in North America are ranked by revenue in our all-important annual list.
