Simplifying business transformation through the cloud is the name of the game for Ingram Micro. As we continue to drive innovation in the cloud services ecosystem, we are excited to announce the availability of our Ingram Micro Cloud Marketplace in India. Initially featuring Microsoft Office 365 through the Microsoft Cloud Solution Provider (CSP) program, the Cloud Marketplace empowers channel partners to easily configure and manage cloud solutions while delivering one consolidated bill to help meet end-user demand and yield greater profits.
Now extending to 17 countries worldwide and five countries in the Asia Pacific region, the Cloud Marketplace is quickly gaining widespread traction in India with nearly 200 enthusiastic channel partners already registered and ready to transact on the automated platform.
“Cloud adoption in India is growing in triple digit percentage year-over-year. We launched the Cloud Solution Provider (CSP) program earlier this year to help SMBs become more competitive with enterprise-grade technology and value-added services from Microsoft cloud. We feel it is important to understand the specific requirements and challenges that SMBs face and help them adopt the cloud in a manner that is financially viable and beneficial for their business, said Meetul Patel, General Manager, SMS&P Business, Microsoft India. “We are excited to be a part of the Ingram Micro Cloud Marketplace in India and look forward to helping both partners and customers get the best that cloud has to offer.”
Ingram Micro has also added some additional enhancements to the Cloud Marketplace to ensure a seamless transition to the Microsoft CSP program. Through the automated platform, channel partners can actively convert their Microsoft Advisor subscriptions to the equivalent CSP subscriptions in a simple, three-step fashion. The Microsoft CSP program is designed to help channel partners strengthen their customer relationships and earn more than double their profit margins.
“With cloud adoption growing steadily in India, we are pleased to deliver the platform, innovative solutions and expertise needed to support cloud business transformation,” said Jaishankar Krishnan, Sr. Vice President & Chief Executive, Ingram Micro India Pvt. Ltd. “The availability of the Cloud Marketplace empowers channel partners to lift their customers businesses to the cloud while growing their own profitability and cloud presence.”
The Ingram Micro Cloud Marketplace is an ecosystem of buyers, sellers and solutions that allows channel partners to transform and grow their business by offering instant access to a wide range of innovative cloud solutions from a single online console.
