Bangalore: US-based distributor with a strong India presence, Ingram Micro has collaborated with Cisco and Symantec ahead of its annual Cloud Summit.

Through a recent agreement with Cisco, Ingram Micro partners wanting to tap into the demand for digitization can now sell Cisco Spark, the collaboration service that lets teams call, message and meet from anywhere in the world. Cisco Spark is available on the Ingram Micro Cloud Marketplace immediately, Ingram Micro said in a blog post.

Ingram Micro has been named as the first distribution partner to offer a fully automated integration of Cisco Spark on a cloud marketplace. This opens up opportunities for partners to drive recurring revenues and enhanced profits.

“With the addition of Cisco Spark to our Cloud Marketplace, we are reinforcing Ingram Micro’s leadership role as the first cloud service provider to offer subscriptions through an automated cloud delivery platform,” said Renee Bergeron, Senior Vice President, Global Cloud, Ingram Micro.

“Our resellers have good reason to be excited, as this offer simplifies the ordering, provisioning, managing and invoicing of their customers’ subscriptions to Cisco Spark services via the Ingram Micro Cloud Marketplace. Most of all, they can now offer subscriptions to the industry’s most advanced cloud-delivered collaboration suite that drives digital business today.”

Symantec has partnered Ingram Micro as global distributor partner which will enable it to distribute Symantec’s network security portfolio. The integrated Cyber security enterprise portfolio includes cloud security, tracking data in motion, at rest or in use, data loss prevention, data encryption and data-center security.

To help partners specialize in verticals, Ingram Micro has also launched four “technology solution blueprints”. Resources for cloud and managed services are available on the company’s online partner learning environment- Ingram Micro Vertical Expo Live.
