RALEIGH, N.C., July 10, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- ANEXIO, the leading "Desktop to Data Center" infrastructure-as-a-service company, ranks in the top 12 percent of the world's 501 most strategic and innovative managed service providers (MSPs) in the Channel Futures 11th-annual MSP 501 Worldwide Company Rankings. ANEXIO moved up 10 spots in 2018 and now ranks 58th among the top 501 global MSPs. This is the second year in a row ANEXIO has broken the top 100. The company ranked 68th in 2017.

The MSP 501 is the first, largest and most comprehensive ranking of managed service providers worldwide. This year Channel Futures received a record number of submissions, as applications poured in from Europe, Asia, South America and beyond. As it has for the last three years, Channel Futures teamed with Clarity Channel Advisors to evaluate the progressive companies and identify the best ones.

"At ANEXIO, we believe that when you take care of the customer everything else falls in line after that," said Tony Pompliano, President and CEO of ANEXIO. "Being ranked in the top 12 percent of the 2018 MSP501 is proof positive that we are meeting and exceeding the managed services needs of our customers around the corner and around the world. We have the right products, we have the right people, and this is definitely the right time for ANEXIO."

MSPs were ranked according to a unique methodology, which recognizes that not all revenue streams are created equal. Channel Futures weighted revenue figures according to how well the applicants' business strategy anticipates trends in the fast-evolving channel ecosystem.

"This year's applicant pool was the largest and most diverse in the history of the survey, and our winners represent the health and progressivity of the managed services market," says Kris Blackmon, Channel Futures content director and editor of the MSP 501. "They're growing their revenue, expanding their customer influence and exploring new technology that will propel them for years to come."

The full MSP 501 report, available this fall, will leverage applicant responses, interviews, and historical data to identify business, and technology trends in the IT channel. Highlights will include:

  • Revenue growth and business models
  • Hiring trends and workforce dynamics
  • Business strategies
  • Service deliverables
  • Business tools and automation investments

The MSP 501 winners and award recipients will be recognized at a special ceremony at Channel Partners Evolution Oct. 9-12 in Philadelphia, as well as in the Fall issue of Channel Partners Magazine. The complete 2018 MSP 501 list is available at Channel Futures.
