ABC Data to roll out its own cloud marketplace

Polish broadliner ABC Data is planning to launch its own cloud services platform in the coming months. The firm currently offers an e-commerce platform named InterLink, but will now offer its partners cloud services from its vendor portfolio through a subscription-based model. Weiss said the cloud platform – which will be called CloudLink – is still in its early stages of development and could not name vendors involved, but said "dozens" of local and global vendors have already expressed an interest. "It depends on how quickly we will be able to fill the platform with our vendors. It is in the early stages; I am talking to vendors at the moment. The cloud platform will offer a subscription-based service model and give us a competitive advantage in the market so we are able to serve our customers better", said Ilona Weiss, ABC Data's CEO. The cloud platform will become available throughout all of its eight territories upon launch, including Czech Republic, Estonia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Romania and Slovakia (source: Channelnomics Europe).
