CRN Recognizes Appplication Jukebox as Emerging Technology

Endeavors Technologies, the pioneer in application streaming and virtualization technology today announced it has been selected by Everything Channel as a CRN Emerging Tech vendor for its Application Jukebox product. CRN's Emerging Tech list captures companies that are delivering high margins for solution providers with innovative and easy-to-use technology that undercuts industry giants.

Application Jukebox is the next-generation application virtualization and streaming solution that simplifies the end-to-end application delivery cycle by streaming applications from their source in the corporate datacenter or other hosted environment, to any user, across a WAN or LAN, on-demand. Users are provided application access, on any PC, from any location, without the need to download or install the application. Applications perform as if natively installed, creating a positive user experience.

"Our channel program enables managed service providers, resellers and other solution providers to capitalize on today's rapidly expanding virtualization market," said Peter Bondar, CEO at Endeavors Technologies. "Partners have shared their enthusiasm over the opportunities Application Jukebox provides, both in the enterprise and in hosting applications for on-demand delivery."

According to the CRN Emerging Tech Survey, the top reasons solution providers add emerging technologies include: the technology is superior to other products in the market segment, the technology compliments a solution providers' existing practice areas, emerging vendors provide better services opportunities, emerging vendors pay better attention to partners, emerging vendors offer higher margins, customers want alternative product choices and emerging vendors have better joint marketing programs. In addition, 61 percent of solutions providers surveyed plan to increase the number of emerging technology vendors they partner with in the next 12 months.

"New and innovative vendor partners can help spur profitable new ideas that Solution Providers can use to build revenue and customer loyalty, and the CRN Emerging Tech list is where Solution Providers go to find these vendors," said Robert C. Demarzo, senior vice president and editorial director, Everything Channel editorial.

Vendors who make the CRN Emerging Tech list must have an established solution provider program and formal guidelines for recruiting channel partners. They must demonstrate that its direct sales mix is trending down as evidenced by the company's revenue history, a channel positive or channel neutral strategy for internal sales compensation, and not be a dominant market share player. Final selection to the Emerging Technology list was made at the discretion of the CRN editorial team after a review of the submitted information and conversations with current or targeted partners.
