Tech Elite 250 List Recognizes Highest Achieving IT Solution Providers in Vendor Certifications
Onica, an award-winning Premier Consulting Partner in the AWS Partner Network (APN) and Managed Services Provider has been named to CRN’s 2019 Tech Elite 250 list. This annual list honors a select group of North American IT solution providers that have earned the highest number of advanced technical certifications from leading technology suppliers, scaled to their company size. These companies have distinguished themselves with multiple, top-level IT certifications, specializations, and partner program designations from the industry’s most prestigious technology providers.
To compile this annual list, The Channel Company’s research group and CRN editors work together to identify the most customer-beneficial technical certifications in the North American IT channel. Companies who have earned these elite designations— which enable solution providers to deliver premium products, services, and customer support—are then selected from a pool of online applicants.
Onica is undergoing a major expansion, growing over 300% in the last two years, and acquiring Canada’s first Premier Consulting Partner, TriNimbus Technologies, in 2018, which expanded Onica’s geographic reach, making it one of the largest AWS consultancies in North America. The company has focused solely on Amazon Web Services and consists of 250+ AWS Certified Solutions Architects that consult with customers as they elevate their presence in the cloud. Onica also holds AWS competencies in Big Data, Healthcare, Education, IoT, Microsoft Solutions, Migration, and Storage, in addition to being a part of the AWS Channel and Government Reseller, Marketplace, and Public Sector Partner programs.
“CRN’s Tech Elite 250 list recognizes solution providers with extensive technical knowledge and premier certifications,” said Bob Skelley, CEO of The Channel Company. “Pursuit of vendor certifications and broader skill sets in a wide range of technologies and IT practices proves a solution provider is committed to delivering maximum business value from those technologies and giving their customers the highest level of service.”
Onica was also named to the 2019 CRN MSP 500 list this year recognizing North American solution providers with cutting-edge approaches to delivering managed services and offerings that help companies navigate the complex and ever-changing landscape of IT. Onica was awarded a spot in the Elite 150 Category, which recognizes large, cloud-focused MSPs.
“It’s an honor to be continually recognized by CRN for our efforts to hone our technical resources in order to provide the best service possible,” said Stephen Garden, Onica’s CEO. “ We are driven by the desire to maximize the experience of our customers and are dedicated to building a world-class team to achieve this goal.”
