Ingram Micro continues to bolster its advanced solutions division as it looks to establish itself as a source of products, training and technical services connected to emerging technologies.
The Advanced Solutions Division was announced back in May with Julian Thompson being put in charge of the unit and the distributor is continuing to expand that approach to the market with Apay Obang-Oyway taking the helm at a newly established services division, which he will run along with the enterprise software and cloud business.
In addition to that change Martin Bannister has been tasked with driving strategic sales through existing and new partners that are working in the advanced solution areas.
"Our objective is to enable our reseller partner community by better understanding their needs and aspirations and in response, creating new opportunities around advanced and integrated technologies while driving forward the Ingram Micro brand as the premier channel development partner," said Thompson.
"Ingram Micro Advanced Solutions offers its VAR, managed service provider, and integrator partners solutions in these major categories: data centre, network infrastructure, unified communications, cloud services, enterprise applications, professional services, and IT life cycle management," he added.
