A detailed study and follow-up news stories, including an interview with Sirius Vice President of Managed Services Jay Johnson will be made available on the MSPmentor site and the Sirius News blog in the coming weeks, according to MSPmentor Editor in Chief Aldrin Brown to “flesh out our findings, which number far too many to fully examine herein.”The ranking methodology was developed by market consulting firm Clarity Channel Advisors in partnership with MSPmentor editors for greater accuracy and thoroughness, according to authorities at MSPmentor. Clarity is a Quincy, MA company that provides data-driven insights to MSPs through its Clarity Intelligence Platform. A study will be released soon that is largely based on information pulled from the participants’ lengthy applications and other sources.

When determining a candidate’s ranking for the 2017 MSPmentor 501 study, MSPmentor and Clarity put the highest value on revenue generated from true managed and cloud services. Revenue from professional services was given a lower weighting, followed by revenue generated from consulting and finally hardware and software reselling.
