The top 100 Solution Providers . . . and all that jazz

CDN’s Top 100 Solution Providers – Update

Join the ITBusiness Group at a special event on Thursday, Nov. 6 as we celebrate Canada’s top solution-providers.

Computer Dealer News has commissioned Evans Research Corp. to determine the Top 75 Canadian Resellers and

the Top 25 Independent Software Vendors. The list will appear in the Nov. 21 issue of CDN.

The event will have a special jazz theme and about 200 guests are expected. Confirmed sponsorships are in place and include Hewlett-Packard, Ingram Micro and NEC Mitsubishi, Microsoft, Symantec and Maxtor.

As a value-added component, Bruce Stuart, President of ChannelCorp, a leading international educator and consultant, will moderate a three-hour afternoon session that will bring together our sponsors and a representative group formed from Canada’s Top 100 resellers. Stuart will offer insight into the characteristics that define the most successful solution-providers.

The fall IT Business Report: Storage From A to Z, picks up from where this spring’s storage issue left off, with articles focusing on storage protocols, appliances, the endurance of tape as a medium and storage security strategies.

Following up on this year’s successful launch of the IT Business Report series, we will again be looking at the topics of security, Linux, storage and others in 2004.
