"Solution providers are always looking for new and innovative technology to solve business problems for their customers. As this industry has shown, today's emerging vendor can be tomorrow's Cisco, Google or Facebook and getting ahead of technology can help a VAR grow their business and differentiate their offerings," said Kelley Damore, VP, Editorial Director, Everything Channel.

Solution providers tell CRN that they are driving a higher percentage of sales and profits from emerging vendors and their technologies in the midst of the economic downturn. This is due to emerging vendors delivering more innovative solutions at a better price for customers, which in turn drive higher profits for solution providers.

The vendors that make the CRN Emerging Technology Vendor list were founded in 2004 or later, have revenue under $1 billion and have an active U.S. channel strategy. Final selection to the Emerging Technology Vendor list was made by the CRN editorial team after a review of submitted information.

The complete listing of the CRN Emerging Technology Vendors is featured in the June issue of CRN Magazine and www.crn.com.
