Calligo wins MSP 501 “MSP of the Year”!

By Will Gardiner on 11 September 2019

Last night at the MSP 501 Awards Gala at Channel Partners Evolution in Washington DC, Calligo was announced as the MSP 501 ‘MSP of the Year’!

Earlier this year, we announced that we had been included in the top 100 of the overall MSP 501 listing – an enormously prestigious global industry ranking for IT Managed Service Providers, handpicked from hundreds of submissions.

 

But last night, Calligo was further recognized for its vision, innovative approach and focus on customer delivery, and was presented with the 2019 ‘MSP of the Year’ award.

 

The judges chose Calligo from amongst the 501 as the outright winner in recognition of its originality, breadth of services, customer-centricity and its role in leading the IT managed services industry in its focus on data optimization and privacy.

 

We are immensely proud of this achievement. From the outset, Calligo has been totally focused on supporting businesses with their data privacy needs and in generating optimal value from their data. It was a brave strategy in 2012, as neither of these conversations had yet developed into what they are today. This award shows that we continue to be truly forward-thinking within the industry and uniquely placed to deliver a broad range of proven data optimization & privacy services to clients at every point along the data lifecycle.

Calligo’s unique collection of innovative cloud-based services covers the entire data journey, from capture and storage to analysis, monetization and archival – with data privacy embedded at every step. These include public & hybrid cloud, IT managed services, productivity and data insights and automation services, all supported by ‘privacy-first’ data management services and specific assistance with national, international and industry-specific data protection obligations.

 

Modern IT managed services has to be about more than IT support, cloud and security. Businesses know that harnessing their data is the key to improving performance and serving customers faster and better, and they expect their technology partners to be able to help. But true data optimization is about more than analytics. It requires focus throughout the entire data lifecycle. Data needs to be made available from high performance cloud services and within a reliable and secure environment and driven through advanced machine learning platforms to deliver insights, but all the while, captured and processed legitimately according to local and international data privacy legislation. This service breadth is beyond most MSPs, leaving most businesses underserved and frustrated, which is why our unique service portfolio is gaining the traction that it is.

The MSP of the Year award was the most coveted prize amongst 10 ‘Special Awards’ presented last night at the MSP 501 Awards Gala, run by top industry publication, Channel Futures.

The evolution of the managed services market is reflected in the changing nature of the MSP 501 winners over the years, and each and every winner from the past 12 years deserves the highest praise and is awarded inclusion in the exclusive Channel Futures 501er Community peer organization.
