 Tech Data’s Technology Solutions business has signed to become a Microsoft Cloud Solution Provider in India in a deal the distributor says will enable partners in India to build profitable businesses in the cloud and create more recurring revenue.

The deal will see the Technology Solutions business, previously a division of Avnet, delivering Microsoft’s entire cloud portfolio, including Azure, software-as-a-service and platform-as-a-service via the Microsoft Cloud Solution Provider program.

Naresh Desai, Tech Data Asia Pacific vice president, specialist business, says the distributor’s portfolio of cloud solutions will enable partners to embrace new consumption models, transform IT and drive business growth.

Sundaresan Kanappan, Tech Data India country manager, says “As the need for a robust, yet affordable, IT infrastructure arises, cloud computing presents a significant value proposition to customers and service provider.

“This strategic collaboration will focus on every client’s specific compute needs whilst providing them the flexibility and opportunity to scale their businesses.”

Technology Solutions says it has a strong presence in India, where it is expanding its portfolio of services to include customised cloud solutions for businesses across industry verticals, including retail, logistics, manufacturing, banking and financial services, public sector and education.

Manish Sharma, Microsoft India SMB Business lead, says the deal will help accelerate cloud adoption across India and enable the digital transformation of businesses.
