Ingram to take its cloud service around the world

Ingram Micro Inc. announced it is expanding its Cloud Marketplace service from a North American venture to a global one.

The new worldwide service will be led by executive vice president of global cloud computing Nimesh Dave and will operates in approximately 170 countries.

Dave said that the distributor is now positioned as a master cloud services aggregator. Ingram Micro’s recent acquisition of Toronto-based SoftCom and the adoption of an automation platform also enables the company to scale the cloud service globally.

First launched in North America, the Ingram Micro Cloud Marketplace is a transactional online marketplace for channel partners and IT professionals to educate themselves, browse, buy, deploy and manage a comprehensive suite of cloud services directly from Ingram Micro. Under the new worldwide organization, Ingram Micro’s online marketplace, which features more than 200 solutions and 70 vendors, will adopt a global platform that is built to enhance the marketplace’s capabilities and introduce a new series of cloud management services. Many of these new features and services will be introduced on April 8, 2014 at the fifth annual Ingram Micro Cloud Summit in Hollywood, Fla.

As part of Ingram Micro’s new global cloud organization, Turker Sokullu, president and founder of Softcom, now also serves as vice president cloud platform and product design, Ingram Micro. Renee Bergeron, vice president cloud computing, has expanded her role to include global cloud sales and marketing. Both executives report directly to Dave.

“The global opportunity around cloud services continues to grow rapidly as businesses and consumers move to anywhere, anytime secure computing,” says Dave. “As a global organization, Ingram Micro Cloud is strategically aligned with the future of technology, as well as to channel partners and IT professionals that want to simplify, scale and successfully sell cloud services.”
