New York, NY, June 15, 2017 – Derive Technologies (also comprising the dedicated Derive Healthcare practice) announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Derive to its 2017 Solution Provider 500 list. The Solution Provider 500 is CRN’s annual ranking of the largest technology integrators, solution providers and IT consultants in North America by revenue.

The Solution Provider 500 is CRN’s predominant channel partner award list, serving as the industry standard for recognition of the most successful solution provider companies in the channel since 1995. This year, for the first time since 2010, the complete list will be published on, making it readily available to vendors seeking out top solution providers to partner with. CRN has also released its 2017 Solution Provider 500: Newcomers list, recognizing 58 companies making their debut in the Solution Provider 500 ranking this year.  

Kirit Desai, CEO of Derive Technologies, said, “as the Channel continues to change, and technology innovation is moving at a fast pace, we’re honored to have been named again to CRN’s Solution Provider 500 list—this time, rising to position #305." He continued: "Our industry recognizes that Derive has continued to meet sales and service goals, and to invest in thousands of hours of training and practical experience, which have resulted in our achievement of Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) and HP, Inc. Platinum Partner statuses, Microsoft Gold Partner status, Cisco Premier Partner status (with the capacity to deliver solutions from all segments of the Cisco data center, cloud, security, networking and collaboration portfolios), and ongoing premiere relationships with other long-time partners, VMware, Apple, Citrix, Lenovo, and additional industry-specific and IT horizontal partners.”

“CRN’s Solution Provider 500 list spotlights the North American IT channel partner organizations that have earned the highest revenue over the past year, providing a valuable resource to vendors looking for top solution providers to partner with,” said Robert Faletra, CEO of The Channel Company. “The companies on this year’s list represent an incredible, combined revenue of over $318 billion, a sum that attests to their success in staying ahead of rapidly changing market demands. We extend our sincerest congratulations to each of these top-performing solution providers and look forward to their future pursuits and successes.”

The complete 2017 Solution Provider 500 list is available online, and a sample from the list will be featured in the June issue of CRN Magazine.
