With cloud computing quickly moving beyond a fad and into the fabric of today’s business scope, organizations across the Middle East are now taking major steps towards implementing a cloud-first strategy into their business plan. According to Gartner, the public cloud services market in the Middle East and North Africa region is projected to increase by 18.3 percent in 2016 to total $879.3 M, up from $743.1 M in 2015.*
To help support this rapid cloud growth in the region, Ingram Micro is pleased to launch its leading automated cloud services platform, the Ingram Micro Cloud Marketplace, in the following countries: Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, and the United Arab Emirates.|
The Ingram Micro Cloud Marketplace (https://me.cloud.im/) is an ecosystem that brings together buyers and sellers to conduct business on a single platform. Rather than building out a comprehensive and multi-layered infrastructure, resellers can leverage the pre-built, flexible platform from Ingram Micro to purchase, provision, manage, and invoice technology solutions for their end-user customers. The platform also automates the end-to-end service delivery and management of cloud solutions to quicken time-to-market, reduce operational costs, and improve overall competitive stance.
With today’s launch, the Cloud Marketplace will offer a variety of industry-leading cloud solutions, including Microsoft Office 365 (through the Microsoft Cloud Solution Provider program) and a suite of migration services from SkyKick, which help service providers automate and manage their customers’ move to Office 365 with less risk and effort. The Microsoft Cloud Solution Provider (CSP) program empowers solution providers to own the complete end-to-end subscription lifecycle, helping ensure greater customer satisfaction and higher renewal margins.
This launch brings the total number of Ingram Micro Cloud Marketplaces worldwide to 20. By leveraging the Ingram Micro Cloud Marketplace, partners can seamlessly transform their traditional businesses to be more competitive and agile without having to make significant infrastructure investments. There’s no easier way to expand your IT capabilities and grow your cloud services practice with confidence and ease.
