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."

Imagine if you will, a retail floor so densely packed with sensors that they can pick up the movements of insects scurrying across a store aisle. Or a component of a piece of factory equipment so well-instrumented that its digital twin provides resolution down to the micrometer.
A strange thing is happening along the way to the Internet of Things, namely far too many devices to work with and manage. It has become clear that we'll need much higher efficiency user experiences that can allow us to more easily and scalably work with the thousands of devices that will soon be in each of our lives. Enter the conversational interface revolution, combining bots we can literally talk with, gesture to, and even direct with our thoughts, with embedded artificial intelligence, whic...
Product connectivity goes hand and hand these days with increased use of personal data. New IoT devices are becoming more personalized than ever before. In his session at 22nd Cloud Expo | DXWorld Expo, Nicolas Fierro, CEO of MIMIR Blockchain Solutions, will discuss how in order to protect your data and privacy, IoT applications need to embrace Blockchain technology for a new level of product security never before seen - or needed.
When shopping for a new data processing platform for IoT solutions, many development teams want to be able to test-drive options before making a choice. Yet when evaluating an IoT solution, it’s simply not feasible to do so at scale with physical devices. Building a sensor simulator is the next best choice; however, generating a realistic simulation at very high TPS with ease of configurability is a formidable challenge. When dealing with multiple application or transport protocols, you would be...
We are given a desktop platform with Java 8 or Java 9 installed and seek to find a way to deploy high-performance Java applications that use Java 3D and/or Jogl without having to run an installer. We are subject to the constraint that the applications be signed and deployed so that they can be run in a trusted environment (i.e., outside of the sandbox). Further, we seek to do this in a way that does not depend on bundling a JRE with our applications, as this makes downloads and installations rat...

In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises. The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lead...
Digital Transformation (DX) is not a "one-size-fits all" strategy. Each organization needs to develop its own unique, long-term DX plan. It must do so by realizing that we now live in a data-driven age, and that technologies such as Cloud Computing, Big Data, the IoT, Cognitive Computing, and Blockchain are only tools. In her general session at 21st Cloud Expo, Rebecca Wanta explained how the strategy must focus on DX and include a commitment from top management to create great IT jobs, monitor ...

The IoT Will Grow: In what might be the most obvious prediction of the decade, the IoT will continue to expand next year, with more and more devices coming online every single day.

Forrester Research has predicted the IoT will become “the backbone” of customer value as it continues to grow. It is no surprise that retail is ...
