Ingram Micro Cloud Marketplace enables reseller partners to purchase, provision, manage and invoice cloud solutions without having to build their own in-depth infrastructure
Santiago, Chile. – August 23, 2017 – Furthering its commitment to Latin America and the global reach of its industry-leading cloud offerings, Ingram Micro Inc. today announced the launch of the Ingram Micro Cloud Marketplace, the company's automated cloud services platform, in Chile.
Now available in 44 countries, the Cloud Marketplace is an automated e-commerce platform that provides an end-to-end portfolio of more than 200 cloud services across the globe. Channel partners who previously would have had to build their own complex and scalable infrastructure to support the growth of their businesses can now leverage the pre-built, flexible and customizable platform from Ingram Micro to purchase, provision, manage and invoice cloud solutions and services in minutes.
The following cloud solutions will be available on the Cloud Marketplace in Chile starting today: Microsoft Office 365 and Microsoft Azure through the Microsoft Cloud Solution Provider (CSP) program; BitTitan MigrationWiz; Acronis backup software and data protection solutions; and IBM's Bluemix. Additional cloud solutions are to be added in the following weeks.
Ingram Micro's new cloud offering in Chile capitalizes on rapidly growing demand for cloud solutions in Latin America. According to IDC's Latin America Cloud Trends Report (October 2016), the adoption of cloud-based technologies in Latin America is expected to reach an estimated growth of 25.8% in 2019. With the launch of the Cloud Marketplace, Chile joins Brazil and Mexico in enabling Ingram Micro's channel partners to easily provide leading cloud solutions and services to customers in the region.
"Today's announcement opens up significant cloud opportunities for our reseller and vendor partners in Latin America," said Marco Tessa, executive director and country chief, Ingram Micro Chile. "The availability of the Cloud Marketplace provides our partners in Chile with a globally established platform and cloud ecosystem that is delivering business solutions that are in-demand by customers around the world."
"The Cloud Marketplace launch is a great step for the growth of digital transformation in our country. Today's launch with the inclusion of IBM Bluemix reinforces our commitment to continue working together with Ingram Micro in developing the cloud ecosystem in the region," said Francisco Thiermann Bories, general manager, Chile, IBM.
"History tells us that following the launch of our Cloud Marketplace in key markets, our reseller partners experience significant growth as they now have access to our multi-vendor marketplace to scale their cloud business," said Jose Furst, director of cloud sales for Latin America at Ingram Micro. "Today is the beginning of an exciting new phase, as we expect the launch of the Cloud Marketplace in Chile to produce the same exponential growth results for our partners that we have experienced in other markets".
