ATLANTA, GA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/06/13 -- Cloud Sherpas was named a "Cool Vendor" for Application Services in a report published on April 17 by Gartner, Inc., a leading analyst firm. We believe the designation further solidifies the company as one of the world's leading cloud services brokerages.

Founded in 2007 as one of the original Google Apps partners, Cloud Sherpas has expanded its breadth of service offerings to include those from providers such as Salesforce and ServiceNow. Since last year, Cloud Sherpas has more than doubled in size and is expected to surpass $100 million in revenue this year as an aggregator, integrator and customizer of cloud services.

"In cloud computing, the need for intermediaries to aggregate, integrate or customize cloud services grows as the number of cloud services and the rate of consumer adoption grow," stated Tiffani Bova, Research VP at Gartner in her November 2012 report, "Service Provider Primer: Cloud Services Brokerage." In a report titled "Cool Vendors in Cloud Service Brokerage Enablers" published on April 23, Gartner estimates that approximately $100 billion will be spent worldwide annually on combined cloud services brokerage (CSB) roles by year-end 2014.

"Cloud Sherpas is honored to be recognized by Gartner as a Cool Vendor," says David Northington, CEO at Cloud Sherpas. "As one of the world's leading cloud services brokerages, we are focused on helping our clients leverage cloud applications to achieve business goals."

Cloud Sherpas is one of the largest stand-alone cloud services brokerages, and its aggressive acquisition and growth strategy has given it global reach among its 5,000 clients. Based in Atlanta with more than 15 offices located around the world, Cloud Sherpas raised more than $80 million in private investment last year.
