Basingstoke, 19 May 2016 – Tech Data has made BitTitan, the cloud enablement services provider available on the StreamOne platform, making it easy for resellers to access and use its solutions whenever they are needed for a customer transition.
BitTitan’s market-leading MigrationWiz and DeploymentPro solutions provide a fast and easy way to transfer mailboxes and data from any platform to Office 365, with auto-scaling and configuration in the cloud and zero downtime. The availability of these solutions in via StreamOne will enable resellers to manage migrations to Office 365 quickly and efficiently.
The solutions are ideal for use with the Microsoft Cloud Solution Provider (CSP) program, so existing Microsoft partners will be able to access and use the platform immediately and with complete confidence, benefiting from a fast, accurate and streamlined ordering process. Tech Data has been closely involved in the introduction of the CSP program in Europe and is the exclusive distributor of the BitTitan on a pan-European basis.
David Newbould, Cloud Services Director Europe at Tech Data, said: “The availability of BitTitan on StreamOne makes it much easier for Microsoft partners to reassure customers that they will be able to manage the migration of multiple mailboxes and data quickly, efficiently, accurately and cost-effectively. Data migration to Office 365 continues to be a very considerable opportunity for partners and by providing a simple, automated way to access and use BitTitan within the Tech Data Cloud, we’re enabling resellers make the entire process smooth and trouble-free for their customers.”
BitTitan solutions are already being used to manage a number of migration projects for Tech Data customers and the company expects many more to be initiated in the coming months. Lon Clark, Global Alliance Manager at BitTitan, welcomed the addition of BitTitan’s MigrationWiz and DeploymentPro solutions to StreamOne.
“Microsoft partners are making extensive use of our solutions on StreamOne to capitalise on the opportunity to move beyond basic email and data migration. The availability of MigrationWiz and DeploymentPro on StreamOne assists resellers in making effortless customer transitions to Office 365 by enabling smoother and faster migrations while at the same time highlighting up-sell/cross-sell opportunities to increase lifetime customer value.”
Using StreamOne, resellers can easily transfer Microsoft customers’ Open and Advisory subscriptions to the Cloud Solution Provider (CSP) program. The user interface has been enhanced to make it simple for both the partner and customer. Transfer of domains, acceptance of terms and conditions, and verifications are automated. Consolidated billing means that all end-users and subscription details are provided in on a single invoice to the partner. Alternatively, one invoice per end-customer can be issued.
Tech Data is also making further enhancements that will make purchasing and identifying add-on options, such as additional storage for Office 365, very simple. These will be implemented by the end of May. Going forwards, partners can expect regular releases of enhancements to the StreamOne platform.
Via the Tech Data Cloud, resellers can offer and supply a wide range of cloud services from leading providers, including AirVM, Cisco, IBM, HP, Microsoft, Veeam and VMware. These services make it possible for resellers to offer cloud options without making significant up-front investments and gradually build their skills and capabilities as customer attitudes and needs evolve. They can make use of the StreamOne platform to manage all customer interactions and billing.
