In a newly released report, IT analyst firm 451 Research welcomed Vertiv’s transformation, saying the company has “remade itself for a datacenter market that demands a lean cost structure and rewards speed,” adding that Vertiv is now “gearing up to take advantage of its broad portfolio and global footprint to take more share in a challenging but expanding datacenter market.”

The report represents one of the first comprehensive analyst evaluations of Vertiv since its sale to Platinum Equity about three years ago, and it extols the company’s increased agility across its global operations and effective growth strategy – including 2018 acquisitions and increased attention to the channel.

The report also noted the changes Vertiv has made to its partner program, specifically its focus on simplifying and streamlining the Vertiv experience for channel partners.
