Broadliner Siewert & Kau is the latest distributor to date to launch its own cloud marketplace. The company will initially distribute Microsoft offer, but plans to add more suppliers over the coming months and years.
S&K's cloud marketplace is a self-service portal with an app store-like structure. Cloud services can be ordered, paid for, provisioned and managed through the portal. From lite to premium contracts, customers will be able to choose between different models of contract. An "onboarding team" will provide support for all questions related to contract model selection and registration.
"In the course of progressive digitalization, the combination of hardware and software is gaining in importance and more and more IT solutions are moving to the cloud", says Thorsten Daniels, Managing Director of Siewert & Kau Service GmbH, describing the current development in the IT environment. "With our new Siewert & Kau Cloud Marketplace, we want to support our partners in this process and support them in building up and expanding their own cloud business."
