SECOND ANNUAL LIST RECOGNIZES IT SOLUTIONS PROVIDERS WITH DEEP TECHNICAL EXPERTISE AND PREMIER CERTIFICATIONS IN NORTH AMERICA
Hunt Valley, Maryland, February 23, 2012 – Data Networks announced today it has been named to CRN’s second annual list of the Tech Elite 250. Companies on the 2012 Tech Elite 250 list represent an elite group of IT Solution Providers that have invested in the training and education needed to earn the most technical certifications in the IT Channel.
In compiling the list, CRN editors worked with the UBM Channel research group and a team of outside experts to define the most customer-beneficial technical certifications in the IT channel. These technical certifications have enabled solution providers to deliver the most premium products, service and support to their North American customers.
Data Network’s most important asset is our experienced and skilled personnel. Each of our engineers is assigned a primary area of technical focus and has in-depth training and technical certifications, as well as a wealth of technical experience in his area of expertise. The dedication to developing focused expertise has resulted in our engineering team members receiving awards such as the Novell Master CNE of the Year Award as well as industry notice with participation in high profile projects and memberships. Our engineers have participated in the development of benchmarks for Novell’s NetWare and eDirectory for the Center for Internet Security (CIS) as well as held a seat on the SANS GSEC Advisory Board.
“The 2012 Tech Elite 250 list recognizes an exclusive group of Solution Providers that have shown a dedication to helping customers innovate while reducing costs,” said Kelley Damore, Vice President, Editorial Director at UBM Channel. “By identifying and adapting to the skills and training needed to best serve today’s customers, members of the Tech Elite 250 have proven their commitment to delivering the products and services that today’s end-users value most.”
