After attracting a record number of visitors to its stand, the value distributor is expecting a positive year ahead for resellers focusing on mid market opportunities.
Heathrow, 16 March 2016 – TD Azlan, the enterprise value added distribution business of Tech Data, is expecting a year of positive growth for Citrix Partners in the mid market after the success of the recent Citrix Partner Accelerator (CPA) 2016 event.
The annual UK and Ireland channel gathering attracted more than 360 delegates with over 50 percent of these delegates choosing to visit the Azlan stand to register an interest in the sales and marketing initiatives launched at CPA. The reseller partners who were able to attend in person heard Citrix outline its plans to support them in 2016 by focusing on markets with significant growth potential. They also heard a keynote speech from England’s Rugby World Cup winning coach, Sir Clive Woodward, on the ‘The DNA of a champion’.
Phil King, Azlan Technology and Services Director, said: “CPA 2016 was a truly inspiring event, where we were able to engage with many existing and potential partners and came away feeling that we can be very positive about the year ahead. We share Citrix’s view that there is significant growth potential in the mid market leveraging the Citrix go to market messaging for vertical sectors, such as financial services, construction retail and education. There will be more opportunities in 2016 with Citrix and we are committed to work with partners to help them grow their business in these target areas.”
TD Azlan is the ideal value distribution partner for Citrix resellers, added King. “Whether they are experts in Citrix already, or relatively new to the virtualised desktop market, Azlan can offer partners end-to-end support on Citrix, from access to the very best sales and technical expertise in Citrix technologies, exceptional demonstration capabilities at our Business Solutions Centre (BSC), right through to marketing and professional services.”
The Azlan BSC at Heathrow is fully equipped with the latest Citrix solutions and complementary technologies. It can be used free of no charge by resellers for demonstrations, briefings and proof-of-concept testing.
One of Azlan’s Citrix reseller partners, Kelway received a Citrix Innovation Partner Award for its work with the Action for Children charity (see http://www.kelway.com/about/case-studies/citrix-innovation-award-action-children/) at CPA. Ultima Business Solutions was also recognised for registering an exceptional performance in registering Citrix opportunities over the past year.
Azlan will further demonstrate its commitment to Citrix and its partners by attending the Citrix Synergy conference on digital business transformation, which takes place in Las Vegas in May (see http://www.citrixsynergy.com/). Major Citrix customers, partners and industry influencers from around the world are expected to attend to gain strategic insights, attend business and technical training and benefit from professional networking.
