. This annual list honors an exclusive group of North
American IT solution providers that have earned the highest number of
advanced technical certifications from leading technology vendors,
scaled to their company size.

Datapipe's inclusion on the 2017 Tech Elite 250 list was driven by its
multitude of industry partnerships
with organizations such as Amazon, Microsoft, Equinix, Oracle, and
VMware. The company's strategic relationships with these industry
leaders and the certifications it holds from them demonstrate its
dedication to continuously advancing its technical expertise and
providing customers with the most cutting-edge solutions for the cloud.

Datapipe certifications from key partners include:

"This exclusive, ambitious group of solution providers boasts some of
the most advanced IT certifications available from top technology
suppliers," said Robert Faletra, CEO, The Channel Company. "They have
adapted impressively to major changes in the IT channel, especially the
shift to a more services-driven market, by expanding their skill sets
and sharpening both their technical and customer service expertise.
Congratulations to our 2017 list, whose robust investment in their
organizations has earned them yet another elite designation—the CRN Tech
Elite 250."

"In anticipation of our customers' evolving needs, Datapipe continuously
expands our skillsets and solutions through our partners," said Robb
Allen, Datapipe Founder and CEO. "Our placement on the CRN Tech Elite
250 recognizes Datapipe's leadership and technical expertise as a
Managed Service Provider."

To compile the 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. Solution providers that
have obtained these elite designations—which enable them to deliver
premium products, services and customer support—are then selected from a
pool of online applicants.
