Arkadin ranks among the world’s Top 100 Cloud Service Providers (CSPs) according to Penton Media’s fourth annual Talkin ’Cloud 100 report. The Top 100 CSPs generated more than $23.4 billion in combined cloud services revenues in 2013, up nearly 44 percent from what they reported the previous year.

The report is based on data from Talkin’ Cloud’s online survey, conducted January through May 2014. Cloud Services Providers, Cloud Services Brokerages, Cloud Services Aggregators, and Managed Services Providers and VARs with cloud service expertise are profiled and ranked on such metrics as annual cloud services revenue growth both in actual dollars and in percentage growth rates.

“We’re thrilled to be recognized as a top cloud services provider,” says Olivier de Puymorin, president, CEO and founder of Arkadin. “Our high standing is a testament to our global success in cloud-based UC&C.  We believe we are well positioned for further growth and leadership by our value proposition for equipping businesses worldwide with UC&C services that drive greater communications efficiencies.”

According to Mr. de Puymorin, Arkadin’s value in UC&C is predicated on the following factors which allow businesses to deal with a single worldwide provider for optimum efficiency and ROI:

  • Resources of NTT Group companies: Part of the NTT Group, one of the largest telecommunications companies in the world, Arkadin has access to vast technological and financial resources to accelerate global expansion in cloud-based UC&C services.
  • Wide range of UC&C services and technical expertise: Arkadin’s acquisition of a key Microsoft partner with deep expertise in hosted telephony and Microsoft technologies, enable an advanced hosted UC&C service platform. Launched this year, Arkadin Total Connect gives businesses the full power of the virtual office with integrated Lync, Exchange and SharePoint.
  • Comprehensive Video-as-a-Service portfolio:  The introduction of Video Managed Services, complete with technical management and bridging capabilities, extends Arkadin’s hosted desktop and room offers, giving businesses a one-stop-shop for serving all video needs.
  • Local/yet global approach to service: Arkadin’s locally delivered end-to-end support, consultancy services and expert training offered in 32 countries, ensures that customers’ UC&C services have high levels of adoption and scale throughout their organizations. 

Penton and Talkin’ Cloud congratulate Arkadin,” said Charlene O’Hanlon, senior executive editor and executive managing editor of Talkin’ Cloud. “The Talkin’ Cloud 100 represents those companies leading the way in the cloud space at a critical point in the maturation of the market.”
