Cloud Services Brokerage Company List: Where Are They Now?
Here’s a look back at CSBs I was watching around 2012… and how they position themselves in 2016:
11. CompatibleOne: Claimed to be the first open source CSB back in 2012 or so. We can no longer track down the company and don’t know its fate.
12. ComputeNext: Still positioning itself as a cloud services brokerage marketplace.
13. Cordys (acquired): Positioned as a software platform for cloud broker enablement in 2012 or so. Acquired by OpenText in 2013 for business process management (BPM).
14. Dell Boomi: Positioned as a cloud integration platform and still going strong.
15. DirectCloud: A division of DirectDial.com, the DirectCloud business claims to be Canada’s leading CSB.
16. DoubleHorn: An Austin, Texas-based Cloud Solutions Provider that still aggressively promotes its CSB expertise.
17. Excel Micro (acquired): Best known as a SaaS distributor, Excel Micro was acquired by J2 Global in 2014.
19. Green Cloud Technologies: Still promotes virtual servers, disaster recovery, network services an more to VARs and MSPs. But a true CSB? I’m not sure that’s the case.
20. GXS Trading Grid (acquired): OpenText acquired the B2B e-commerce platform for cloud services in January 2014.
