Broadliner Tech Data signs a distribution agreement in the DACH region (Austria, Germany, Liechtenstein and Switzerland) with Software AG, a leading provider of enterprise software Integration & APIs, IoT & Analytics and Business & IT Transformation. Software AG's products and solutions enable Tech Data partners to drive innovation for their customers by helping them connect and integrate virtually everything in their businesses - from applications and devices to data and clouds.
Digital transformation is transforming enterprise IT landscapes - modern and software platform-based IT architectures provide the flexibility, speed and agility that real-time digital enterprises demand. Software AG's solutions help Tech Data partners tap into new customer segments by leveraging the distributor's ecosystem technologies optimised to work with cloud technologies such as Microsoft Azure.
Due to the massive use of cloud technologies, companies repeatedly experience a high proportion of shadow IT, where IT projects are managed outside of the IT department and without their knowledge. This disjointed approach leads to inconsistent and disconnected data when technologies are introduced. It significantly limits a company's ability to innovate quickly.
Software AG's webMethods technology platform helps overcome this fragmentation by integrating data and removing the barriers between IT, business departments, operations technology (OT) and business partners. With this approach, companies derive more value from their data and use it to develop actionable growth strategies.
"Our customers know that they need to move their businesses to the cloud to be competitive. We are very pleased that partner Tech Data is offering our technology to customers so they can take full advantage of the cloud", said Thomas Alberti, CEO of SAG Deutschland GmbH, a wholly owned subsidiary of Software AG, and Senior Vice President Sales, Germany, Austria and Switzerland. "Our customers gain a greater and lasting competitive advantage with our modular platform that helps them make sense of the vast amounts of data they have."
Maximilian Wieser, Team Leader IoT & Data of Tech Data's Security BU, adds: "as a leading provider of integration platforms and IoT solutions, Software AG helps our partners with the digital transformation: away from application silos - towards modern platform-driven architectures. In addition, our partners in the IoT environment benefit from the leading platform Cumulocity IoTand can further expand the transformation of their business processes with ARIS, to name just two of the many added values."
