Just days before it holds cloud education seminars for resellers Ingram Micro has vowed to keep putting muscle behind its efforts to educate partners about the hosted world.
As one of the key movers in the Channel Transformation Alliance, which aims to educate resellers about making the practical transition to the cloud, the vendor has also been building its owm portfolio of services.
The distributor also joined the Cloud Industry Forum and SNIA Europe to make sure it was getting the channel view across in other forums.
Matt Sanderson, UK managing director at Ingram, said that it had to keep pushing with its cloud efforts to ensure it could support resellers who wanted to start selling and supporting hosted platforms and services.
"In 2011 we exploded the notion of what people expect from a distributor with a host of new partner signings, a significant investment in services capability, and events designed to take reseller partners on a journey into new, profitable technology areas," he said.
"2012 offers a real and exciting opportunity for our partners to reassert their value and importance to the whole ICT end-user ecosystem as the consumption of information by end-users evolves," he added.
Ingram is hosting some managed service provider events next week on Monday and Tuesday in Abingdon with plans to run more through the year.
