About the Program
Each year, CDN, the voice of Canada’s IT channel community, connects with IT solution providers across the country to collect data for an industry benchmark report which, once compiled, presents an overview of this market segment as well as trends. The data is also used to determine our annual ranking of the Top 100 solution providers as measured by revenue ranges, for which a gala is held to celebrate the contributions of these solution providers to the growth of the technology sector in Canada. Achievements of the Top 100 are recognized through specific awards as follows:
In addition to the rankings, which list each company in order of its previous year’s total revenue, CDN will celebrate Canada’s:
• Top five solution providers by revenue;
• Fastest rising company;
• Highest-ranking newcomer;
• *NEW* Top six solution providers by industry; one in each of the healthcare, education, retail, financial, manufacturing, and oil and gas sectors.
Recipients of these awards receive extensive media coverage through feature stories in the digital magazine CDN, and in both the computerdealernews.com and itbusiness.ca websites. In addition, the full Top 100 Solution Providers list is published.
Underscoring the Top 100 program is a special Solution Providers’ Benchmark Report, undertaken in collaboration with our research partner, IDC Canada. This exclusive survey report delves into successful business models in use by solution providers, provides valuable insight into trends, and looks at where the channel is headed. The Solution Providers’ Benchmark Report provides an overview of the sector, including: growth, which products and services are being sold, partners, and what customers are purchasing.
