CRN is a premium IT business publication for IT systems integrators, managed service providers, IT solutions companies and distributors/vendors. CRN is an internationally respected brand with a strong local focus on the issues that matter most to the Australian channel.
CRN’s Editorial Director, Steve Kiernan, commented on the increasingly competitive nature of the awards:
“Every year the CRN Fast50 gets more competitive. This is the ninth year of the awards since we launched the program back in 2009, and it was the fastest year yet. The average growth rate was 85.9 percent! It was an incredible achievement by all of the companies that secured a place in the 2017 CRN Fast50.
This year included a diverse mix of technology companies of all shapes and sizes, from all corners of Australia. We had IT providers specialising in networking, in security, in public cloud. We are celebrating tech firms that have developed their own intellectual property and those that have partnered with new and interesting vendors. Services continue to be a central focus, both professional services and managed services.”
I was extremely impressed by the focus on culture. In a sector where the battle for talent is ever-present, the CRN Fast50 have proved they can attract the best people to their teams to deliver outstanding results for customers.”
