Which UK VARs are among the European channel's 200 most important players?

Introducing The European Elite - a major new report from our sister site Channelnomics Europe

Although Europe may seem like an increasingly divided place, the IT industry is one sector where borders are being more readily crossed than ever before. More than ever, a wide range of channel players across the continent are seeking to buy, expand, or partner their way into new countries and markets.

And it is not hard to understand why. Technology such as cloud computing has made it far easier for even small businesses to scale internationally. Meanwhile international companies - of all shapes and sizes - are typically seeking to cultivate a supply chain that can offer them a consistent experience across the globe. VARs who can only serve their clients in one country or region are in serious danger of losing business and reputation.

It is this globalisation trend that not only prompted the launch of CRN sister site Channelnomics Europe in 2014, but has now inspired the creation of The European Elite - a major new report identifying the 200 channel players that currently define the industry across Europe, as well as those that will do so in the years and decades to come.

In addition to the 200 Elite companies profiled - 29 of which are drawn from the UK or Ireland - the study also contains information on 125 further Ones to Watch, as well as 500 Best of the Rest. This adds up to a total of 825 firms - more than one in six of which are from the British Isles. A diverse selection of channel players feature, including massive global services providers, in addition to specialised start-ups leading the charge into new and emerging technologies, as well as national or regional players who are mainstays of a small, but thriving ecosystem.

The 60-page report - which is available for download, completely free of charge - also features exclusive insight and analysis on various markets and regions, and a number of one-on-one interviews with prominent industry leaders.
