Tech Data introduces new global brand
2017-11-17

American broadliner Tech Data has introduced its new brand identity, highlighting the company's expanded reach and capabilities as a global leader in technology distribution and services. Following the company's transformational acquisition of Avnet's Technology Solutions business earlier this year, Tech Data has established a single global brand that capitalizes on the full reach, efficiency, and technical expertise of its new combined organization. Tech Data will now operate as a unified brand in all of its markets throughout the world, enabling channel partners to benefit from its unmatched end-to-end portfolio of products, solutions, and services. "As we evolve our business in anticipation of what's next, the Tech Data brand has evolved as well. Today we are proud to introduce the new Tech Data and the next chapter in the history of our company", said Bob Dutkowsky, chairman and CEO of Tech Data. "Our new global brand is centered on the proven strength of the Tech Data name and provides a unified promise of integrity, expertise and excellence. Tech Data serves as a beacon in the IT channel—central to our customers' and vendors' success. Our teams have highly specialized skills in next-generation technologies, extensive software and services capabilities, and the best logistics engine in the industry, all backed by a global IT system that can do anything from process the sale of a laptop to configure the most complex multi-vendor solution. Tech Data has become a company that delivers business outcomes—not just products—and we're excited for the future of our company as we help connect the world with the power of technology."

To enable a specialized approach while maintaining the exceptional service levels that partners expect from Tech Data, the company has grouped its offerings into two primary solutions portfolios under the Tech Data brand:

  • Tech Data's Endpoint Solutions portfolio, previously known as the company's broadline offering, primarily includes PC systems, mobile phones and accessories, printers, peripherals, supplies, software and consumer electronics.
  • Tech Data's Advanced Solutions portfolio includes primarily data center technologies such as storage, networking, servers, advanced technology software and converged/hyperconverged infrastructure. This portfolio also includes next-generation technologies such as cloud, IoT, mobility, security and analytics solutions.
  • Tech Data's next-generation technology solutions, as well as the company's services offering, including lifecycle, CRM, integration and supply chain services, span its Endpoint and Advanced Solutions portfolios. In addition to the company's two solutions portfolios, Tech Data will continue to go to market with three specialized solutions: Datech Solutions, Maverick AV Solutions and Global Computing Components. Azlan, Tech Data's pan-European enterprise specialist brand, will be transitioned over time and will be incorporated into the company's Advanced Solutions portfolio.

While Tech Data's logo will not change, the company's color palette and graphic devices have been updated to incorporate both its foundation and its new dimensions, blending the unique capabilities of Tech Data and Technology Solutions into a modern, global brand. Tech Data has also introduced new purpose, vision, and mission statements.

Broadliner Tech Data has announced that its Azlan VAD division has extended its distribution agreement with Docker, to deliver their Enterprise Edition (EE) offering across a wider European footprint. This partnership further strengthens Tech Data's footprint in the data center market and provides partners with the ability to take a holistic approach to application and software development, deliver agility and flexibility to IT operations, and drive down operational costs. "Containerization is a fast-growing technology and we see a good opportunity with Docker to provide more of our customers with the competitive edge they need to stay ahead", said Jason Boxall, vice president Strategic Vendors & International Channels EMEA at Tech Data. "Tech Data is already an established leader in data center solutions and can provide an optimum platform for Docker's technology to transform more businesses across Europe. In turn, Docker will benefit from our extensive partner network as we work together to help drive adoption and integration with a range of technologies in various enterprise environments."

Tech Data will distribute Docker Enterprise Edition (EE), an integrated platform for developers and IT teams to collaborate, bringing improved security, policy and controls to the application lifecycle without sacrificing agility or application portability. Tech Data will also distribute all editions of Docker Enterprise Edition (EE) subscriptions: Basic, Standard and Advanced. This agreement will help to drive innovation in the cloud and leverage existing knowledge to create optimal data center environments. Docker Enterprise Edition provides organisations with an enterprise-ready management solution that allows developers to ship applications from development to production 13 times faster, while giving operations teams the ability to seamlessly migrate these workloads to the cloud.

The extended footprint includes Austria, Italy, Portugal, Spain and Switzerland, as well as all of the East region countries where it operates, including Czechia, Hungary, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, Turkey and the Adriatic region. The rollout is being done in a phased approach, which started with Switzerland in March and Portugal and Spain in April. Additional countries will be rolled out over the coming months.
