Burhani Ranked Among Top 501 Global Managed Service Providers


[1st July 2018, Dubai, UAE]


Burhani Managed IT Services, the #1 ranked IT services and support company in Dubai, UAE, is pleased to announce its inclusion in the 2018 MSP 501 award winners ranking list, the first, largest, and most comprehensive annual industry ranking survey as compiled by IT channel media leader, Channel Futures.

The MSP 501 spotlights the best 501 Managed IT Services Providers (MSPs) worldwide.

Burhani is one of the few top IT support companies in the world that have won this recognition for the second year in a row.

Qusai Poonawalla, CEO of Burhani, said, ‘We are absolutely thrilled to be the only IT Services Company in the Middle East region to have won this recognition for the second year in a row.

This award is the result of our almost-fanatical commitment to adopting global IT industry best practices and processes in order to help our clients succeed with technology.”



The MSP 501 is the first, largest and most comprehensive ranking of managed service providers worldwide. This year Channel Futures received a record number of submissions. Applications poured in from Europe, Asia, South America and beyond.

As it has for the last three years, Channel Futures teamed with Clarity Channel Advisors to evaluate these progressive and forward-leaning companies. MSPs were ranked according to our unique methodology, which recognizes that not all revenue streams are created equal. We weighted revenue figures according to how well the applicant’s business strategy anticipates trends in the fast-evolving channel ecosystem.

The MSP 501 winners and award recipients will be recognized at a special ceremony at Channel Partners Evolution, held this year October 9-12 in Philadelphia, as well as in the Fall issue of Channel Partners Magazine.

“This year’s applicant pool was the largest and most diverse in the history of the survey, and our winners represent the health and progressivity of the managed services market,” says Kris Blackmon, Channel Futures content director and editor of the MSP 501. “They’re growing their revenue, expanding their customer influence and exploring new technology that will propel them for years to come.”

The full MSP 501 report, available this fall, will leverage applicant responses, interviews and historical data to identify business and technology trends in the IT channel. Highlights will include:

  • Revenue growth and business models
  • Hiring trends and workforce dynamics
  • Business strategies
  • Service deliverables
  • Business tools and automation investments

The complete 2018 MSP 501 list is available at Channel Futures.


The 2018 MSP 501 list is based on data collected by Channel Futures and its sister site, Channel Partners. Data was collected online from Feb. 28 through May 31, 2018. The MSP 501 list recognizes top managed service providers based on metrics including recurring revenue, growth and other factors.
