Tech Elite 250 list recognizes highest achieving IT solution providers in vendor certifications

LOS ANGELES – March 28, 2019 – Mission, a managed services and consulting company for Amazon Web Services (AWS), today announced that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Mission to its 2019 Tech Elite 250 list. This annual list honors a select group of North American IT solution providers that have earned the highest number of advanced technical certifications from leading technology suppliers, scaled to their company size. These companies have distinguished themselves with multiple, top-level IT certifications, specializations, and partner program designations from the industry’s most prestigious technology providers.

To compile this annual list, The Channel Company’s research group and CRN editors work together to identify the most customer-beneficial technical certifications in the North American IT channel. Companies who have earned these elite designations – which enable solution providers to deliver premium products, services and customer support – are then selected from a pool of applicants.

Mission is dedicated to ensuring its team of AWS solutions architects and consultants are continually trained and certified across a breadth of AWS competencies and best practices. The AWS managed service provider maintains nearly 100 AWS certifications, is an APN Advanced Consulting Partner, has AWS Competency Partner statusin Healthcare, Life Sciences, and DevOps, and holds particularly deep domain expertise for customers working in game tech, media and entertainment, digital media, Software-as-a-Service, education, consumer goods, e-commerce, and marketing. This commitment to ongoing training and certification speaks to Mission’s core value proposition as a managed provider: delivering a thoroughly comprehensive understanding of how to strategically plan, skillfully execute, and continually optimize customers’ unique AWS environments and use cases.

“CRN’s Tech Elite 250 list recognizes solution providers with extensive technical knowledge and premier certifications,” said Bob Skelley, CEO of The Channel Company. “Pursuit of vendor certifications and broader skill sets in a wide range of technologies and IT practices proves a solution provider is committed to delivering maximum business value from those technologies and giving their customers the highest level of service.”

“We’re proud to be included in CRN’s Tech Elite 250 list on the basis of our AWS certifications,” said Phaedra Divras, Chief Operating Officer – Service Delivery, Mission. “At Mission, our focus on cultivating certifications and expert-level proficiency with an ever-expanding repertoire of AWS solutions speaks to who we are as a cloud services provider.
