Basingstoke, 29 October 2015 – Tech Data is helping Microsoft partners to accelerate their time-to-market for cloud solutions with two promotions to drive service revenues.
Resellers that buy Microsoft Cloud services within the Cloud Solution Provider (CSP) programme before the end of December will qualify for the equivalent of one month for free, subject to terms and conditions. They can either spend the full value of the contract on cloud training, or take 80 percent of the contract value and split it in any way they wish between training and a sales credit. This will enable Microsoft partners to accelerate their learning and become competent in driving business with Microsoft CSP.
In addition, Tech Data is helping partners to drive customer migrations to Office 365 by offering BitTitan MigrationWiz mailbox and DeploymentPro licenses of up to 50 seats to Microsoft partners free of charge. The offer is applicable to the reseller’s first migration project during the offer period.
Reza Honarmand, vice president, Software and Cloud, Europe, at Tech Data, said, “Tech Data is committed to helping resellers accelerate their cloud business and these offers will encourage and incentivise them to engage on CSP and migrate customers to Office 365 and other cloud platforms. We have been leading the way with CSP and we want to encourage more Microsoft partners to come forward and engage with us on the programme.
“Tech Data is the exclusive distributor for BitTitan in Europe and the free licenses offer will enable partners to demonstrate just how effective the MigrationWiz and DeploymentPro tools are in migrating Microsoft apps quickly and accurately and give them further confidence and encouragement to move more customers to cloud platforms.”
Microsoft’s Cloud Solution Provider programme provides partners with access to cloud-based solutions on a recurring monthly basis via Tech Data’s StreamOne platform. It enables partners to take ownership of the end-to-end customer engagement by directly provisioning, billing and supporting Microsoft Cloud Services for customers.
BitTitan’s MigrationWiz is the fastest and easiest way to migrate mailboxes and data from any platform to Office 365. It is the only solution that auto-scales in the cloud, reducing business complexity and simplifying projects of any size. DeploymentPro configures Outlook clients to Office 365 automatically. Users experience zero downtime during the entire process.
Both offers are available on orders placed up to 31 December 2015. The BitTitan offer is open to all Microsoft Cloud Transacting Partners with a Microsoft Partner Network ID. The free licenses issued will expire 90 days from receipt.
The Tech Data Cloud provides resellers with access to a complete set of resources that enable them to offer cloud services and transform their business model. Tech Data provides access to a comprehensive portfolio of best-of-breed IaaS, PaaS and SaaS services. Services are available from IBM SoftLayer, Microsoft Azure, VMware vCloud Air, IBM, AirVM and HP. Resellers are able to access, test and provision services for customers and subsequently manage customer usage and provide consolidated monthly billing for both partners and customers. Cloud services can simply be re-sold, made available within the partner’s own website or offered as part of fully independent cloud services platform.
