May 25, 2016: Global Data Systems has appeared on Penton Technology’s ninth-annual MSPmentor 501 Global Edition, a distinguished list and report identifying the world’s top 501 managed service providers (MSPs). GDS made this year's list at #53.
"Being included on this list is a true honor," said Ned Fasullo, Chief Marketing Officer, GDS. "Continuously placing in the top 100 of 500 great companies, is a testament to the hard work that all of the team members at Global Data Systems deserve the credit for."
Each year, MSPmentor gathers information for its annual rankings through the participation of managed service providers and IT service providers in our annual survey.
"We want to congratulate Global Data Systems and look forward to covering their growth strategies in the year ahead," said Marcia Parker, Executive Director, Penton Technology Group.
Taken as a whole, the companies on the 2016 MSP 501 list amassed a combined $9.82 billion in recurring revenue (based on 2015 results). For comparison, that’s roughly as much money as the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) grossed from 13 films spanning nine years.
Between 2014 and 2015, MSP 501 companies collectively increased the overall number of users they manage worldwide by nearly 16 percent. What is more, they increased the number of devices they oversee by nearly 30 percent. (If you’re wondering how they charge to oversee their empires, 42 percent rely on a hybrid user/device model, 24 percent charge on a per-user basis and 23 percent use a per-device rate.)
