"We are honored that industry leaders have once again recognized BTG as a top cloud and managed IT services provider, globally," said Jeff Kaplan, CEO, Breakthrough Technology Group. "Talkin Cloud is among the foremost technology publications and executive resources, and we appreciate the attention this esteemed group has bestowed upon us for our relentless commitment to innovation."

In addition to honoring BTG, this year's Talkin' Cloud 100 report profiles:

  • Cloud Services Providers: CSPs offer SaaS (software as a service), infrastructure as a service (IaaS) and/or PaaS (platform as a service) to partners/customers.
  • Cloud Services Brokerages: CSBs, or cloud brokers, recommend and resell multiple cloud services to customers, and often integrate those services.
  • Cloud Services Aggregators: CSAs, or cloud aggregators, typically offer a portal that allows VARs and MSPs to source multiple third-party cloud services for customers.
