Dicker Data ramps up cloud portfolio with seven new vendors

05 Sep 16

Dicker Data has inked distribution deal with seven new vendors for its cloud portfolio as it seeks to build a ‘comprehensive’ suite of cloud offerings for resellers.

The new lineup includes BitTitan, SkyKick, Intralinks, Maaxcloud, xRM, Corent Technology and Gumbuya.

David Dicker, Dicker Data chairman and chief executive, says the new additions are complementary to the distributor’s current offerings, particularly following its recent launch as a Microsoft Indirect CSP.

Dicker Data went live with its Microsoft indirect CSP offering last week, providing resellers with access to Microsoft’s products via scalable subscription-based models.

BitTitan offers a platform to help automate sales, service delivery and ongoing customer management in the cloud, while Skykick offers an integrated platform providing cloud management tools for IT providers.

Intralinks provides secure sharing and collaboration tools, MaaxCloud offers and on boarding as a service solution, while xRM offers solutions around Microsoft Dynamics CRM.

Corrent Technology’s offerings include a cloud management platform offering migration tools and a PaaS and SaaS platform. Gumbuya is a platform for building business applications.

“They’ll assist partners in migrating to the cloud and broaden the range of cloud offerings our partners take to market,” Dicker says of the new additions.

Dicker says the distributor will continue recruiting more cloud enablement and service-based vendors ‘in the near future’ as it looks to build a comprehensive suite of offerings to support resellers’ cloud business transformations.

“By assisting our partners to secure subscription revenue, we’re also building that level of predictability into our future revenue,” he says.
