Ingram Micro has injected pre and post-sales support modules on HP Networking and VMware virtualisation to its portfolio of professional services.
The move will see the distributor add conuslting, project management, audit, on-site engineering, traning and post installation support services on those vendors' technologies.
Matt Sanderson, Ingram Micro UK boss said: "We were seeing an increase in the number of requirements for our team to provide on-site extensions to our pre-sales services."
He added that both enterprise and SMB reseller customers were outsourcing services to it, "supplementing their in-house resource".
Ingram holds HP Master Certification for servers and storage; Cisco and now HP Networking and VMware.
The play for the data centre transformation market took shape when Ingram acquired CCD in late 2009.
The distributor today vowed to continue broadening both its vendor and services portoflio.
