Sven Groot, Director Advanced Solutions at Ingram Micro NL
Multispecialist Ingram Micro has become a Red Hat Certified Cloud Service Provider (CCSP) Distributor in the Netherlands.
The Red Hat Certified Cloud Service Provider program enables Cloud Service Providers to offer the Red Hat portfolio through a monthly, pay-as-you-go model that supports multi-tenant, dedicated and managed services models.
With a dedicated team, Ingram Micro offers support and training in sales, engineering and marketing. This allows Cloud partners to better respond to end-user queries about current trends such as Hybrid Cloud, Containers, DevOps and software-defined management and Management and Automation. This ensures that Ingram Micro can now help its partners set up the right services around the Red Hat portfolio.
Ingram Micro offers added value by providing support with technical issues, demos and/or proof of concept (PoC) and by providing targeted sales training and advice. In the field of marketing, Ingram Micro develops the right go-to-market strategy and associated lead generation activities in collaboration with its partners.
"Participation in the CCSP program, in addition to our existing collaboration with Red Hat, fits seamlessly into our strategy", says Sven Groot, Director Advanced Solutions at Ingram Micro. "Thanks to CCSP, we can respond better when it comes to Cloud and Managed Services in the market. We can offer our partners a more complete product range that responds to the rapid changes in their go-to-market strategy."
"We are excited to work with Ingram Micro as a Red Hat Certified Cloud and Service Provider and as part of the Red Hat partner ecosystem", said Bart Schurer, Sales Manager Partner & Alliances at Red Hat. "We strive to offer customers and developers a wide selection of choices in the Cloud. Important to this vision is building a strong ecosystem of partners so that users can create and implement the best possible applications. We look forward to working with Ingram Micro to expand their cloud offerings with Red Hat."
