U.S. Government and public sector agencies are turning to cloud platforms and solutions to save money to be more efficient and effectively focus on IT resources in support of their mission. They are turning to providers of IT and mission support services to guide them in their journey to the cloud, and to harness the cloud to better support their agency mission goals.

For more than four decades, the IT Distribution channel has provided the indispensable service of delivering IT hardware, software, and services to IT resellers and systems integrators who support our public sector agencies. Ingram Micro Cloud, U.S. owned and 100% channel focused, has long been one of the most trusted names in IT Distribution. We are also one of the world’s largest and most accomplished Cloud Solutions Aggregators, delivering cloud services to resellers to power the as-a-Service economy.

At a time when leading Cloud Solution Providers (CSP’s) and hyperscalers struggle to provide individualized support to resellers, IT providers are being tasked with architecting and implementing the agencies cloud roadmap in a manner that directly supports, enhances, and achieves the agency’s mission.

So, here’s the question. As a reseller of cloud services, would you rather…

  1. Spend time helping your customers build mission-focused solutions that matter; or
  2. Build a back-office to support provisioning, managing, and optimizing cloud services

There is a better way.

Ingram Micro Cloud delivers value as a trusted partner in provisioning and managing undifferentiated CSP processes and tasks so our partners can better support the mission of their U.S. Government agency customers.

While some Cloud Solutions Aggregators are trying to find the right balance between their direct to end-user/agency model, and their two-tier distribution model; Ingram Micro Cloud is 100% focused on helping you build your business. Our channel-conflict-free model allows us to build a relationship with our partners based on trust and a singular focus on helping you best serve the needs of your public sector customers.

It’s clear that we are in a multi-cloud world, and that there are benefits and differentiators for each hyperscaler CSP in best supporting the needs of a public sector agency mission. Ingram Micro Cloud delivers the “know-how” across top CSP’s to enable you to build best in class solutions for your customers.

Competing for business in the public sector can be time-consuming, complex, and often requires knowledge of the public sector procurement process. Today’s cloud resellers are smart to partner with Cloud Solutions Aggregator that can offer valuable tools, resources and enablement make public sector easier.

Ingram Micro Cloud is proud to offer our Cloud 1st Partner Initiative featuring:

  • Contracts Alliance Program (CAP) - partners gain access to a valuable portfolio of federal, state, local and education contracts that are widely used by the public sector to procure cloud services, and public sector agencies are the beneficiaries of a streamlined procurement process.
  • Bid Capture Desk - Our Bid Capture Team works with our partners to support bid responses and serves as the go-to resource for bid and contract related questions.
  • Cloud 1st Prospecting and Lead Portal - Our RF(x) portal empowers partners to prospect, identify, and win more business - featuring top solicitations identified by our Capture Team, and a self-service lead bank of current solicitations curated for cloud resellers.

Our partners look to us to help them grow their cloud infrastructure practice, because they get more support and enablement then they can get directly from today’s leading hyperscalers. When you choose to partner with Ingram Micro Cloud as your solutions aggregator, you don’t lose any of the benefits of having a direct relationship with each CSP. In fact, you benefit even more by having a trusted partner who is closely aligned with both you and the CSP.

Our people, platforms, programs, pro-services, and pathways (contracts) are put to work for our partners to help make public sector easy for our partners. Come experience the Ingram Micro difference. Ingram Micro Cloud, delivering More-as-a-Service.
