Broadliner Tech Data has announced the availability of its Cloud Solutions Factory, another service for sales partners within the Tech Data cloud marketplace StreamOne. This gives partners access to a new global portfolio of validated end-to-end cloud solutions. The new offering includes a variety of click-to-run infrastructure, data protection, IoT and analytics solutions that can be quickly and easily deployed by channel partners.
"When we launched the Cloud Solutions Factory, our focus was on delivering positive business results to our partners with ready-to-go solutions", said Sergio Farache, senior vice president of strategy, innovation, cloud and M&A at Tech Data. "Designing and implementing cloud solutions can be a complex and lengthy process, so all our offerings are pre-configured, validated and tested and Tech Data monitors the implementation. The result is a set of reliable solutions that help our partners reduce costs, maximise efficiency, and increase competitiveness."
With the challenges of digital transformation, companies are increasingly investing in cloud solutions to achieve a wealth of business success. In the third quarter of 2018, cloud infrastructure revenue exceeded traditional non-cloud IT environment revenue for the first time, according to IDC1. The Tech Data Cloud Solutions Factory enables partners to meet this demand by adding differentiated solutions to their portfolio while reducing cost, deployment risk and time-to-market. The Tech Data Cloud Solutions Factory includes a wide range of IT and business solutions. These are designed with third-party licenses, services and components and include core infrastructure, application innovation and data protection.
Stefan Bichler, Director of the Software & Solutions business unit at Tech Data Deutschland, comments on the new offering: "by working with industry-leading cloud manufacturers, we have built a portfolio of integrated solutions that can be easily and quickly configured, customised and implemented by our partners. The services and manufacturers are selected according to how well they meet the high demands of the companies. They must meet specific criteria aimed at providing our partners and their customers with a high level of security and maximum added value. I am very proud to be able to offer our partners coherent, validated and out-of-the-box solutions that are available in our StreamOne marketplace through a one-click process."
The Tech Data Cloud Solutions Factory is constantly being expanded with new vendors and solutions. The first partners include Microsoft, Amazon Web Services, Red Hat, NetApp, Veeam, Autodesk and many others.
