Ingram Micro gets global cloud force in place
Broadliner Ingram Micro has amassed a 300-strong force of dedicated cloud experts to execute its global cloud plans and is expanding the team further to cope with demand. Earlier this year the distribution giant unveiled its Ingram Micro Cloud Marketplace plans at its Global Cloud Summit in Florida, which it claimed would offer a complete ecosystem of buyers, sellers and solutions to enable simple and rapid cloud adoption. Resellers would also have access to a number of "white glove" services including technical sales engineering, migration, remote infrastructure management and service desk. Initially rolled out in the US earlier this month, the initiative is set to be unveiled in Canada next month, Mexico in August and Europe for Q4.
Brand launch positions Ingram Micro for the future
American broadliner Ingram Micro has launched a new company brand identity. This new, global brand has a bold, modern look and feel, signaling the company's leadership in technology and supply chain services. With recent investments in growth over the past couple of years, this new brand is part of creating a platform of new capabilities and services whereby Ingram Micro helps businesses fully realize the promise of technology. The bold new look incorporates a blue that is both eye-catching and pleasing, while the letters convey the strength and dependability of a true, world-class leader. The tilt of the G signals acceleration and agility, while its virtual absence reinforces transparency and the company's unique insights. Agility, insight and dependability, these are all qualities valued by Ingram Micro's partners.
