This is the second year running for the MSP; awarded Rising Star status in third category for the first time
Claranet, the global technology and managed service provider, has been named a Market Leader in two categories in the 2020 ISG Provider Lens™ for Public Cloud Solutions and Services Quadrant report. The MSP was also named Rising Star in a third category.
ISG Provider Lens delivers leading-edge and actionable research studies, reports and consulting services focused on service providers’ strengths and weaknesses, and how they are positioned relative to their peers in the market. Its reports provide influential insights accessed to a large pool of advisors who actively advise on outsourcing deals, as well as large numbers of ISG enterprise clients who are potential outsourcers.
Claranet was named Market Leader in both ‘Consulting and Transformational Services for Midmarket’ and ‘Managed Public Cloud Services for Midmarket’ categories, while attaining for the first time Rising Star status in the ‘Managed Public Cloud Services for Large Accounts’.
Mark Turner, Claranet’s Director of Cloud, stated: “Enterprise clients expect service providers to bring in a cloud-centred differentiator for business transformation across their businesses. We are therefore delighted to have been recognised as market leader in two categories that are core to our business focus – the midmarket. What is of particular delight is that we are now being recognised as a Rising Star in the ‘large accounts’ category for the first time.
“The report has rightly recognised the work that we have done to build strategic partnerships with Microsoft, AWS, Google, Oracle and VMware. Claranet is a Microsoft Gold Partner and recognises that we are an Azure Expert with proven, tailored migration strategies and capabilities to ensure the lowest risk for clients’ business-critical applications.”
The author, ISG lead Public Cloud Service research analyst Manoj Chandra Jha, stated: “Claranet accelerates enterprises’ cloud modernisation journeys with its end-to-end professional services. The firm works in close collaboration with customers to continuously improve and modernise their cloud environment and introduce innovative, flexible modernisation and managed services.”
