The RCP 200 list provides a simple answer to a complicated question: Who are the best Microsoft solution provider partners in the United States?
Solution providers come in many shapes and sizes, and Microsoft partners more than any other vendor’s partner community defy easy categorization. Microsoft has a product list running into the hundreds of products, and the company has tens of thousands of partners in the United States alone.
The genius of the Microsoft Partner Network is that it relies on the variety, creativity and business acumen of Microsoft’s channel to offer solutions to every customer’s unique requirements from the raw material of Microsoft’s product set.
That very variety and scope can make it difficult for customers to know where to start if they’re looking for great partners. Microsoft offers online search tools to help customers locate partners, but they tell customers relatively little about the quality of the partners in the results list.
In this second-annual RCP 200, Redmond Channel Partner magazine brings into one place a collection of Microsoft’s rock star partners (you can also find all 200 of them on Twitter here). To compile the 2017 RCP 200, we relied on 12 years experience as an independent magazine focused on the Microsoft channel community. We dug through the magazine’s archives, Microsoft award lists, invitation-only Microsoft partner programs and other sources to find 200 U.S.-based companies with a reputation for providing sterling services.
