Logicalis US Ranked Among Top 100 Cloud Service Providers

Sixth Annual Talkin’ Cloud 100 Report Identifies Technology Providers Leading Digital Innovation in the Cloud

NEW YORK, October 11, 2016 – Logicalis US, an international IT solutions and managed services provider (www.us.logicalis.com), announced today that it has ranked among the world’s top 100 cloud service providers (CSPs) according to Penton’s sixth annual Talkin’ Cloud 100 report.

The full report is available at http://www.talkincloud.com/tc100.

Based on data from Talkin’ Cloud’s online survey, conducted between June and August 2016, the Talkin’ Cloud 100 list recognizes top CSPs considering annual cloud services revenue growth and input from Penton Technology’s channel editors.

“There’s a significant change taking place in IT today, and cloud computing is at the heart of it,” says Eric Brooks, Cloud and Automation Practice Leader, Logicalis US.  “Organizations that want to be agile enough to quickly respond to changes in business environments need to rely on a host of compute capabilities delivered as-a-service in the cloud. To take advantage of these offerings, CIOs are shifting their thinking about IT as a technology-defined function to one that is services defined, and they need partners like Logicalis that can help them with this digital transformation. Being recognized among the world’s top cloud service providers is, therefore, both an honor and an industrywide acknowledgement of the proficiency Logicalis displays in delivering services via the cloud and helping our clients chart their course toward becoming service-defined organizations.”

“On behalf of Penton and Talkin' Cloud, I would like to congratulate Logicalis for its recognition as a Talkin' Cloud 100 honoree," says Nicole Henderson, Editor in Chief, Talkin' Cloud. “Cloud services providers on the Talkin’ Cloud 100 set themselves apart through innovative cloud offerings and new support models demonstrating a deep understanding of their customers’ needs and future cloud opportunities.”
