SHI’s robust growth continued in Q1 with $1.7 billion in revenue – a 13 percent year-over-year increase. Revenue increased sharply across all divisions and geographies, and was strong among long-term and emerging partners alike.
Consider these stats:
- Corporate and SMB division revenue climbed 24 percent.
- Commercial and Strategic Enterprise division revenue grew 13 percent.
- The U.K. office saw 24 percent revenue growth.
- SHI’s Microsoft Azure revenue soared 147 percent quarter over quarter.
- SHI’s AWS revenue jumped 112 percent year over year.
Increased customer demand for help in deploying and managing public cloud assets caused SHI to reanalyze and augment the types and levels of support we provide customers in our cloud offerings. So this quarter we launched an AWS Support Services program that delivers additional consultative and direct helpdesk support to customers tasked with managing the technical, financial, and corporate governance aspects of AWS and, as the year progresses, other cloud technologies, including Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud.
For more information on SHI’s Q1 financial results, our new AWS Support Services program, and thoughts from CEO Thai Lee, read our official press release.

In the past 12 months, the IT landscape has been remapped in both technical and business terms. Cloud, on-prem data center, and hybrid infrastructure have presented customers with more IT options than ever before. Meanwhile mergers, acquisitions, and divestitures consolidate some vendors while creating others – often in the same marketplace. Still, SHI marches forward.
Driven by strong partner performances, SHI’s first half revenue came in at $3.3 billion – a 12 percent year-over-year increase. SHI recorded growth across its enterprise and commercial, public sector, and SMB sales divisions, and saw $400 million in revenue from emerging partners, many of which focus on cloud-based technologies that continue to challenge the traditional IT playing field.

We’re beginning to sound like a broken record, but that’s because we are … breaking records! 2015 was SHI’s best year yet with $6.8 billion in revenue — our strongest financial performance in a calendar year ever. The year was marked by robust and well-balanced growth from its four key sales divisions.
Overall, SHI increased revenue 14 percent year-over-year, in great part because of strengthened ties with our legacy and new partners, including Dell, HP Inc. and HP Enterprise (after splitting in 2015), VMware, Symantec, Lenovo, Adobe, and Apple. In 2015, Cisco became the fastest-growing partner among our top 10. We also saw 12 percent growth in Microsoft sales last year, and remain the company’s largest North American and global channel partner.

SHI’s Q3 was yet another stellar three months: The company’s quarterly revenue of $1.7 billion (a 14 percent year-over-year increase) pushes up our 2015 revenue to $4.7 billion – a record for the first nine months of a calendar year. In Q3, legacy partners like Microsoft, Dell, Adobe, Symantec, HP, and Cisco continued to perform very strongly. Our emerging partners — Lenovo, Apple, Tableau, and Pure Storage – were the top incremental new revenue drivers, which highlights the trend we’re seeing of customers investing in big data/business analytics tools, as well as flash storage and mobility solutions.

SHI continued its fast-paced growth during the first quarter of 2015, and brought in $1.3 billion in revenue, which represents a 12 percent year-over-year increase over Q1 2014. This growth was propelled in part by demand for Microsoft products and services, and for cloud solutions in particular. SHI’s Microsoft cloud business, including Office 365 and Azure, grew 126 percent among commercial customers, and represented 20 percent of all Microsoft revenues through SHI.
SHI also saw significant revenue growth abroad in Canada, the United Kingdom, and France, and among commercial and public sector organizations.
For additional breakdowns of SHI’s revenue growth and CEO Thai Lee’s perspective on our quarterly results, read our official press release.
SHI’s 25th year was a momentous one, and not just because we celebrated our silver anniversary; in 2014, SHI broke the $6 billion revenue plateau and grew to more than 2,800 employees for the first time.
SHI’s revenue growth was driven significantly by each of SHI’s sales divisions, with the Corporate and Public Sector segments expanding the fastest at 30 percent and 18 percent year over year, respectively. To keep pace with our growth, SHI invested heavily in our workforce, adding 350 employees to the global team, as well as in real estate and infrastructure through space acquisitions in the U.K., Texas, and New Jersey.
CEO Thai Lee acknowledged this success in a press release issued yesterday, saying, “Our consistent, substantial growth is a direct result of our close partnerships and our team’s unmatched ability to help customers select, deploy, and manage their technology. Our success has given us the opportunity to build our team in a way that will drive growth and deliver a superior level of customer service.” Continue Reading…
