Ingram Micro’s EVP of Global Cloud, Nimesh Davé was the final speaker on main stage today at Cloud Summit 2016, and his message was clear – Ingram Micro helps you to do more with more! We have seen some big numbers used to try to quantify the opportunity that is cloud. “But we shouldn’t worry about trying to figure that out,” says Davé. “Just know it’s BIG!”
“Does anyone know what this number is 1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000?” asks Davé. This is one septillion, a number that we should all get used to seeing in the near future. This number is not a calculated data point but a metaphorical representation of the scale and complexity in cloud. And that presents an interesting dilemma: How do you solve the problem of complexity in scale and service? To face this challenge you need a partner that brings scale – one that has the best people, processes and platforms, and one that is committed to making the investments needed to ensure your success. Ingram Micro can help you to solve this problem, Davé asserts. But how?
Enter the Ingram Micro Ecosystem of Cloud.
With the Ecosystem of Cloud, Ingram Micro solves the problem of complexity in scale by managing the complete lifecycle of cloud services from discovery to consumption. The ecosystem unifies and connects many complex components including:
- Aggregation of cloud service providers
- Commercial enablement (contract management)
- Integration (IPAAS) - Integration Platform as a Service
- Product Management
- Practice Solutions (turn products into solutions)
- Consolidated Billing
- 24/7 support
- Channel Enablement
- Partner Channels – Telco, Hoster, VAR, Retailers, E-Tailers, MSP, SI (tens of millions of businesses)
“Ingram Micro brings more partners, more customers, more technology and more investment.” Davé tells us, “We help you do more with more.” The Ecosystem of Cloud is certainly impressive, from all angles, and we should expect to hear a lot more about it in 2016.
