Broadliner Tech Data Europe is creating a complete Microsoft cloud ecosystem that will enable partners to deliver the Microsoft's entire software stack, along with complementary solutions, quickly and efficiently through a single, integrated management platform. All of Microsoft's cloud-based solutions, including Microsoft Office 365, Microsoft Azure and Microsoft Enterprise Mobility + Security (EMS), are available through the Tech Data Cloud Solution Store, powered by the company’s StreamOne platform, as part of the Microsoft Cloud Solutions Provider (CSP) program. This means resellers, VARs and MSPs can offer the full range of Microsoft solutions alongside complementary offerings through a single portal, and also make use of the monitoring and billing capabilities of Tech Data's platform to manage their customer accounts. "Microsoft solutions are widely used in most end-user organisations and many customers now want to use those applications in the cloud, so it's important that resellers can support the entire stack", said Reza Honarmand, vice president, Cloud, Europe at Tech Data. "In addition, customers need efficient ways to manage and integrate applications and ensure their data is properly backed-up, safe and secure. Through our Cloud Solution Store, Tech Data is providing not only the complete Microsoft suite under the CSP program, but also a whole range of complementary solutions and services that will enable VARs and MSPs to add value to the services they offer and enhance their long-term business prospects."
David Smith, vice president, Worldwide SMB for Microsoft, stated: "the cloud offers tremendous opportunity for our partners and mutual customers. By creating its Microsoft-centric cloud ecosystem, Tech Data is making it simple for our partners to put our best-in-class cloud solutions in the hands of customers."
Further strengthening Tech Data's portfolio of value-added services, the company has recently signed pan-European partnership agreements with the following four leading providers of complementary solutions and plans to make additional services available over the next several months:
Tech Data European boss Cano planning exit
Tech Data's European boss Nestor Cano is planning to retire from the distributor once the integration of Avnet TS is complete, should the deal get the go-ahead. Tech Data announced plans to snap up Avnet Technology Solutions last September in a deal worth €2.35b, which is expected to close in the first half of this year. Should the deal go ahead, Cano will continue in his role throughout the integration process, but will then retire. Cano joined Tech Data through the Computer 2000 acquisition in 1989 and served in various management positions in Spain and Portugal, before being promoted to regional managing director. A number of US and global roles followed before he become president of Europe for the firm in 2007 (source: Channelweb UK).
