Tech Data has launched its StreamOne Cloud Marketplace in India. The provisioning, billing and end-user lifecycle management digital platform allows partners to scale, launch and manage a broad range of cloud services, including Software as a Service (SaaS), Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and Platform as a Service (PaaS). It also enables partners to deliver advanced offerings such as assessment, migration, security and monitoring – enabling hassle-free cloud transitions for their customers.
Naresh Desai, vice president, Specialist Business Unit, Asia Pacific at Tech Data said, “The digital platform provides simplified access to premium cloud services from trusted providers, enabling our partners to offer cloud services with minimal investment and quickly drive recurring revenue. The platform currently offers a broad range of Microsoft O365 and Azure services, which our customers can leverage to cater to their end users’ cloud requirements, and we plan to continue adding to the portfolio of services available on the platform.”
The StreamOne platform, developed by Tech Data, provides partners with the capability to manage the entire end-user lifecycle for consumption- and subscription-based cloud services. Partners can easily leverage tools and resources that enable them to learn about, invest in and manage cloud services. Tech Data’s specialized support makes it easier for partners to efficiently transition their business models as well as unlock vendor and service provider program benefits.
The company also recently announced that Richard T Hume, executive vice president, chief operating officer, will become the company’s chief executive officer effective June 6, 2018 and has been nominated to join the company’s Board of Directors. Hume will succeed Robert M. Dutkowsky, who will transition to the role of executive chairman of the Board. The announcement is the culmination of the Board’s leadership succession plan that capitalizes on the strength of the Tech Data management team. Hume joined Tech Data in 2016 and since then, he has played a pivotal role in the creation of the company’s long-term strategy.
Dutkowsky has served as Tech Data’s CEO and a member of the company’s Board of Directors since 2006. In 2017, he was named chairman of the Board. Under Dutkowsky’s leadership, Tech Data has transformed into a global end-to-end IT distributor with an offerings portfolio that spans from endpoint devices to the most advanced data center solutions and next-generation technologies. During his 12-year tenure, the company’s revenues have grown from $21 billion to more than $36 billion, and non-GAAP earnings per share have increased by more than 550 percent. As executive chairman, Dutkowsky, in addition to his governance and board oversight responsibilities, will be actively involved as a strategic advisor to Hume, will provide support in vendor, customer and community engagement as directed by the CEO and will be involved in special projects as designated by the CEO or Board.
