CRN Magazine Recognizes SkyKick as Emerging Cloud Vendor and Cool Cloud Startup

SkyKick to Launch Updated Version of Migration Suite in Coming Months

SEATTLE, WA--(Marketwired - Aug 20, 2013) - SkyKick (, the easiest way to Office 365, today announced that CRN Magazine has recently named SkyKick as a 2013 "Emerging Cloud Vendor" in its August 2013 print issue for its new and innovative platform that enables IT partners to quickly move SMBs to the cloud. CRN has also recently named SkyKick one of "The 10 Coolest Cloud Startups of 2013 (So Far)" and one of "10 Hot Tech Startups" in April 2013.

"SkyKick had barely launched its automated Microsoft Office 365 cloud migration suite in 2013 before inking a deal with Fortune 500 distributor SYNNEX," CRN recently wrote when referring to SkyKick as one of "The 10 Coolest Cloud Startups of 2013 (So Far)." "The two companies made the deal official in July and announced they are ready to ramp up distribution of SkyKick's cloud migration automation platform, which helps solution providers move SMB customers from legacy systems to Office 365 in just hours instead of the delicate and lengthy procedure the process usually requires."

The SkyKick Application Suite helps IT Consultants, System Integrators, Managed Service Providers, Value-Added Resellers and other IT partners automate an entire Office 365 migration project from initial sales to project completion for SMBs. This enables partners to improve sales velocity, reduce project risk and complexity, and simplify the management of the migration project, while providing a high-quality migration for their customers. 

"This recognition by CRN further validates that SkyKick is offering an essential solution that no one else is providing in the cloud space -- an easy, scalable and profitable way for partners to automate the entire Office 365 migration project," said SkyKick co-CEO Todd Schwartz. "We're excited to receive this recognition, and continue innovating to help our partners in this space."

SkyKick will roll out a new version of its Application Suite in the coming months. The SkyKick Application Suite is being leveraged by hundreds of partners to migrate thousands of SMBs to Office 365. Traditionally, migration tools have focused on moving server-side data, which is merely one step in an overall migration-consulting project. The SkyKick Application Suite goes far beyond, helping partners manage all of the essential steps of a migration project including the sales, planning, migration and on-site phases of their customer's move to Office 365.
