Applicants submitted case studies of projects they had completed in the previous year. Submissions were judged by the Channel Partners editorial staff and members of the Channel Partners Advisory Board.

“The entire Channel Partners and Channel Futures team, as well as our guest judges, CompTIA’s Carolyn April, IDC’s Sean Riley and Forrester’s Jay McBain, congratulate our inaugural class of Excellence in Digital Service award winners,” said Lorna Garey, editor-in-chief for Channel Partners. “These 12 entries rose to the top in a highly competitive field of 50 finalists to take home the coveted Digi trophy. We were pleased to honor them at our awards ceremony during Channel Partners Conference & Expo 2019.”

Clarify360 was recognized for its work on a cloud enablement project with a health-care firm that provides coverage to eligible Medicare beneficiaries in Puerto Rico. The extensive initiative included an effort to ensure high availability and disaster recovery while also improving business operations. A key part of the effort was application rationalization, the practice of strategically identifying business applications across an organization to determine which should be kept, replaced, retired or consolidated.

“The entire Clarify360 team is incredibly humbled to receive this recognition from Channel Partners,” stated Kelly Ratcliff, Clarify360 CEO. “We aim to drive business outcomes and optimization for our clients through the cloud technology solutions we recommend and deploy. To be recognized for that within our peer community is not only unique, but very gratifying,” he added.
