Ingram Micro NZ boosts portfolio with EMC distribution deal

"Whether it’s cloud computing, big data, trusted infrastructure or storage, EMC has class leading products across all these sectors and more."

Ingram Micro, New Zealand’s largest distributor of technology products, has signed a distribution agreement with EMC in New Zealand, replacing Westcon after nine years of service.

Gary Bigwood, Managing Director of Ingram Micro New Zealand, says the company is excited at the opportunities the appointment offers.

"Whether it’s cloud computing, big data, trusted infrastructure or storage, EMC has class leading products across all these sectors and more," he says.

"We are absolutely delighted with this appointment and have great plans to work with EMC to rapidly grow its presence in New Zealand."

The New Zealand distribution agreement extends Ingram Micro’s EMC footprint in the region, as the company is already an EMC distributor in Australia.

"It is imperative that we have a high-performing and progressive New Zealand distribution partner to deliver EMC technology to our customers," says Phill Patton, Country Manager, EMC New Zealand.

"That’s why we selected Ingram Micro. Our organisations share similar values and aspirations and we are looking forward to working together.

"Going forward Ingram Micro will replace Westcon as EMC’s primary distributor in New Zealand.

"Westcon’s contribution to EMC in New Zealand over the years has been greatly appreciated and we thank them for their partnership.

"Ingram Micro will distribute the majority of EMC’s range. However, for some specific products within EMC’s portfolio we will continue to work with specialty distributors to support these products."

The EMC distribution agreement takes effect on 1 July, following a short transition period.

"We have a strong existing relationship with Ingram Micro in the region and we’re delighted to be broadening this relationship to service our New Zealand partners," adds Christopher Trevitt, General Manager, Partner Sales, EMC Australia and New Zealand.

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.
