N-able by SolarWinds Sweeps Managed Services Category in CRN's 2014 Annual Report Card

Managed Services Innovator Earns Top Honors and Partner Praise in CRN's Inaugural Managed Services ARC Survey

OTTAWA, ON -- (Marketwired) -- 08/20/14 -- N-able by SolarWinds, a global leader in remote monitoring and management (RMM) and service automation software, today proudly announced it has been named a CRN Annual Report Card (ARC) winner, sweeping the entire managed services category to earn top honors across the partnership, support and product innovation sub-categories. The 2014 win marks the first year CRN has recognized managed services as part of the prestigious annual partner survey.

According to Patrick Leonard, Vice President of Metairie, La.-based My IT, N-able's selection reflects the value the managed services innovator delivers to its partners. "N-able is focused heavily on the relationships they establish with their MSPs, and they are true visionaries in managed services," says Leonard. "They are not selling a remote monitoring and management (RMM) platform but rather a business model and enablement resources that prime their partners for greater success."

The ARC honor also underscores N-able's ongoing commitment to technological advancements in managed services. Earlier this year, N-able launched its N-central 9.4 RMM and MSP service automation platform and new Help Desk Manager (HDM), based on SolarWinds® technology, optimized for MSPs. N-central 9.4 and N-able's HDM work together to simplify success for MSPs by further automating IT services and simplifying help desk support so that it can easily scale across their customers' entire infrastructure.

JP Jauvin, general manager of N-able, accepted the award on Aug. 19 at The Channel Company's XChange conference in San Antonio.

"We are thrilled to be the first RMM provider to win and sweep the new managed services category in this year's CRN ARC survey," says Jauvin. "ARC represents the best of the best because it's rated solely by those partners who do business with a vendor. It's a peer/partnership measurement that others trust and cannot easily refute, making it all the more important and gratifying to our team at N-able. We'd like to thank CRN and our world-class partners for this esteemed recognition."

For nearly three decades, the distinguished ARC study has served as a benchmark for excellence throughout the IT channel, recognizing the technology vendors most highly praised by their solution provider partners. Honorees are selected based on the results of an in-depth survey by The Channel Company's research team. This year, more than 2,500 solution providers were asked to evaluate their satisfaction with 81 vendor partners on each of 18 criteria in terms of product innovation, support and partnership.

"IT today is about solving business problems, and it requires more than just stellar products. Solution providers are looking for vendor partners that embrace the IT channel, working with them hand-in-hand to meet their customers' needs," said Robert Faletra, CEO of The Channel Company, publisher of CRN. "CRN's Annual Report Card is the definitive word on who those vendors are, coming straight from the solution providers themselves. The ARC has been recognizing the vendors that deliver their solutions through the channel in the most effective ways for 29 years, and we congratulate N-able as one of 2014's top honorees."

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
