Ingram Micro emerged a clear leader, winning the Cloud Distributor of the Year award at the Channel Middle East Awards 2019. In 2016 Ingram Micro launched its Cloud MarketPlace to offer channel partners the option to automate their cloud solutions orders and reduce the delivery time to less than 24 hours. This market place now has more than 30 cloud solutions and is available in 11 countries in Middle East Turkey and Africa, including more than 30 cloud offerings across 4 major cloud solutions adapted to different verticals needs.
In October 2018, Ingram Micro Cloud Market Place crossed 100,000 sold seats and now boasts one of the richest cloud vendors portfolio in Middle East, Turkey and Africa with more than 300 registered partners.
"We are really excited about this win since we are constantly expanding the solutions portfolio on our Cloud Marketplace to help our reseller partners provide better solutions to their customers. I feel that this award mirrors our commitment to the region as well as our customers and partners,” said Guruprit Ahuja, cloud director for META region.
In February 2019, Ingram Micro launched Connect, a global self-service ISV and vendor onboarding system and a new Sales and Marketing Hub, is fully integrated with the Ingram Micro Cloud Marketplace. This hub enables channel partners to discover and learn about cloud products, create and execute marketing campaigns, and access sales enablement resources so they can be the go-to cloud experts for their customers. The distributor also hosts Cloud Summit META, a yearly channel event dedicated to Cloud offerings where more than 300 partner representatives attend to know more about the latest cloud solutions and technologies and explore the opportunities to grow their cloud portfolio.
