Wakefield, MA – June 10, 2010 – Edgewater Technology, Inc. (NASDAQ: EDGW, http://www.edgewater.com/, “Edgewater” or the “Company”), a consulting firm that brings a synergistic blend of specialty services to its clients in the areas of business advisory, analytics, data management and technology, has been recognized by Everything Channel as one of North America’s top technology integrators. Edgewater placed number 361 on the 2010 VAR 500.
The 16th annual ranking VAR 500 list details the leading producers among technology integrators and technology solution provider organizations in North America based on gross worldwide revenue of hardware and software sales, as well as earnings from professional and managed IT services.
“It’s a privilege to be included in the VAR 500 again,” said Shirley Singleton, Chairman, President and CEO of Edgewater. “Our customers are increasingly requesting that commercially available software products, in conjunction with our vertical expertise, be leveraged in the development of the next generation of custom solutions. The drive to accelerate the verticalization of off-the-shelf products is a natural offshoot from our historic custom development offerings. To that end, Edgewater has been steadily building additional product competencies in the Microsoft, Oracle and SAP channels. Our December 2009 acquisition of Fullscope, a leading provider of Microsoft Dynamics AX, will hopefully accelerate our standings on the VAR 500 next year.”
“The VAR 500 is the “who’s who” of the solution provider community. Microsoft, HP, Cisco, Symantec among others are highly reliant on the VAR 500 to sell their products to businesses, and collectively this audience generated more than $500B in sales in 2009. Even more importantly they solve customers’ biggest IT business problems through product integration, training, consulting and services. In companies large and small, the VAR 500 are considered integration experts, trusted business advisors and invaluable partners. We are honored to compile this list and represent this audience,” said Kelley Damore, VP, Editorial Director of Everything Channel.
The complete listing of the VAR500 is published in print and online at CRN.com on May 24, 2010.
