Youngstown, OH February 23, 2011 – DRS, LLC has been named to the inaugural CRN Tech Elite 250. The Tech Elite 250 serves as the industry’s definitive list of VARs with both deep technical expertise and premier certifications. DRS has been recognized as a best-of-breed integrator who has invested in technical know-how and earned premier certifications in the areas of data centers and infrastructure for North American customers.
CRN Editors worked with solution providers and outside experts to define the most important technical certifications in the market today. By mapping certifications against the key technology opportunities as defined by CRN’s State of the Market and Midmarket study, the Tech Elite 250 recognizes the VARs most committed to helping customers innovate while reducing costs.
DRS has developed technical expertise around enterprise technologies that can have the most impact on small and medium sized businesses, while working to make those technologies affordable to those customers. DRS is an industry leader in bringing those types of high end solutions to small and medium sized customers.
“The Tech Elite 250 recognizes an elite group of VARs who are successfully navigating the dynamic IT channel market,” said Kelley Damore, Vice President, Editorial Director at Everything Channel. “By adapting to new customer purchasing patterns and redefining best practices, these solution providers are delivering the strategies and value customers demand to compete in today’s competitive economic environment.”
