We are pleased to announce that Ingram Micro has been appointed Microsoft's Value Add Distribution (VAD) partner in Australia.

Microsoft's VAD programme, which is being rolled out globally, is a partnership with distributors that Microsoft identifies globally as key to helping drive reseller awareness, capability and product knowledge of Microsoft's virtualization solutions.

The programme focuses on identifying reseller partners that are investing in creating new virtualization practices or in growing and diversifying their existing business in virtualization, data-centre and cloud technologies and driving the growth in adoption of Microsoft's technologies in these areas.

Together with Microsoft, Ingram Micro will help you to drive growth by providing additional sales and marketing resources, and tools such as Microsoft's Assessment and Planning Toolkit and Virtualization Partner Profitability Kit, that enable resellers to model the economics of their virtualization practice, map their customers' IT infrastructures, and assess their customers' readiness for virtualization.

Register your interest in participating in the program, and one of our Microsoft team members will be in touch to get you started.
