Hammering home its commitment to cloud and channel partner enablement, Ingram Micro has made several strategic announcements at its annual Cloud Summit this week in Phoenix, Arizona.

According to the global distributor, which operates on Auckland’s North Shore at a local level, the newly announced offerings are significant because they enable channel partners to enhance overall profitability as they transform and lift their business into the cloud.

"We are excited about the overwhelming attendance at this year's Cloud Summit and the opportunity to share so many new announcements that will further enable our partners' success," says Renee Bergeron, vice president, Cloud, Ingram Micro.

"These new programs and services are the result of partnering closely with our resellers to develop new and innovative ways to increase their time-to-market and overall profitability."

During the event's various keynote sessions, the company announced the following offerings are available in the U.S. and Canada today, with other countries, including New Zealand, following shortly:

Microsoft Office 365 Available on the Ingram Micro Cloud Marketplace:

Through the marketplace, Bergeron says partners can now directly provision and offer Office 365 bundles, set their own price and invoice monthly, resulting in a more direct relationship with their customers.

Channel partners also can leverage the marketplace to bundle the Ingram Micro Service Desk for 7/24/365 support and SkyKick Migration Suites to help customers quickly move to Office 365.

Expanded Cloud Marketplace Portfolio:

According to Bergeron, the Ingram Micro Cloud Marketplace offers a “gateway for channel partners” to transform their cloud business by offering online access to a wide array of services and solutions from market-leading cloud vendors.

Educating from the epicentre - Why distributors are the pulse checkers of the channel

Educating from the epicentre - Why distributors are the pulse checkers of the channel

​As the channel changes and industry voices deepen, the need for clarity and insight heightens. Market misconceptions talk of an “under pressure” distribution space, with competitors in that fateful “race for relevance” across New Zealand. Amidst the cliched assumptions however, distribution is once again showing its strength, as a force to be listened to, rather than questioned. Traditionally, the role was born out of a need for vendors and resellers to find one another, acting as a bridge between the testing lab and the marketplace. Yet despite new technologies and business approaches shaking the channel to its very core, distributors remain tied to the epicentre - providing the voice of reason amidst a seismic industry shift. In looking across both sides of the vendor and partner fences, the middle concept of the three-tier chain remains centrally placed to understand the metrics of two differing worlds, as the continual pulse checkers of the local channel. This exclusive Reseller News Roundtable, in association with Dicker Data and rhipe, examined the pivotal role of distribution in understanding the health of the channel, educating from the epicentre as the market transforms at a rapid rate.
