Channel's top names to square off as CRN Tech Impact finalists unveiled

Some of the channel's top names will go head-to-head this summer after making the cut for the CRN Tech Impact 2022 shortlist.

The awards will see scores of vendors, distributors, IT solutions providers and ITADs battle it out across 12 sustainability-related categories, with the winners announced on 15 September.

The CRN Tech Impact campaign and awards are designed to spread sustainability best practice in the channel (view last year's show here). Where appropriate, we will publish some of the best examples of innovation from all entries, whether they win or not.

Some 76 entries have made the shortlist this year (see below), with Computacenter, Softcat, Atos, Tech Data and HPE among the industry heavyweights that made the cut.

The publication of the shortlist comes as CRN unveils two additional judges who will sit on the Tech Impact judging panel. These are ADISA CEO Steve Mellings, HP UK& channel director Anna Chalmers.
