Recap: Top 100 Vertical Market MSPs 2017 List and Research
ChannelE2E recently unveiled the second-annual Top 100 Vertical Market MSPs list and associated research. The list and research (hashtag: #Top100MSP) identify and honor the top 100 managed services providers (MSPs) in healthcare, government, financial services, manufacturing and additional vertical markets.
The Top 100 Vertical Market MSPs rankings are based on ChannelE2E’s Q1 2017 readership survey. MSPs featured throughout the list and research leverage deep vertical market expertise to drive annual recurring revenues (ARR) in specific market segments.
This year’s research identified several key trends:
- The most successful vertical market MSPs are zeroing in on financial services and healthcare, although consolidation in the healthcare IT services sector is accelerating.
- MSP micro-verticals have emerged. Examples include IT services for veterinary hospitals (healthcare); hedge funds (financial services), and clubs and resorts (hospitality).
- The MSP shift from device management to user experience is still accelerating. Top 100 MSPs now manage 513 million people and their user experiences vs only 401,445 devices.
Fifty-three of this year’s MSP honorees are new to the list due to aggressive M&A activity across the MSP sector along with ChannelE2E’s rapidly growing readership database. Only 18 months since launch, ChannelE2E is now the largest media brand the After Nines Inc. team has ever built.
