Tech Data releases Click-to-Run solutions in Aus

30 Sep 2020

Tech Data has launched Click-to-Run solutions widely available across Australia, enabling channel partners to meet regional market demands for complex cloud solutions. 

Tech Data’s multi-vendor Click-to-Run solutions simplify complex solutions for partners to configure, customise and deploy, reducing time and risk for customers. 

More than 20 pre-configured Click-to-Run solutions are currently available across multiple practice areas, such as core infrastructure, application innovation, data protection, the Internet of Things (IoT) and analytics, and more will continue to be added.

Businesses across the region are undertaking digital transformation initiatives to tackle new workloads through the modernising of their existing infrastructures and the adoption of cloud. 

According to IDC, business agility, or the need for speed from IT, is the most important trigger factor for considering cloud services – as opposed to cost and access to new functionality in this region.

“The need for speed and agility are the key influencing factors for enterprise cloud adoption,” says Tech Data A/NZ country general manager and vice president Andy Berry. 

“Tech Data is excited to make available these Click-to-Run solutions in Australia and Asia Pacific, as we enable our channel partners to avoid complex and lengthy deployment processes, maximise productivity and provide a distinct competitive edge.”

Data, AI and security head for Cloud-based platform provider Urbanise, Ananth Selladoray says, “Urbanise is a 100% cloud-based organisation, which means security is paramount for customers and other stakeholders. We were particularly interested in implementing the Tech Data Secure Score Click-to-Run solution as it configures the basic security policies in a few clicks. The recently updated versions, which gives policy options, are helpful for us to classify the standard and enterprise features. For partners, it helped us to talk more on enterprise securities, which results in business for us.”

Click-to-Run solutions are part of Tech Data’s Cloud Solutions Factory which includes a broad set of IT and business solutions practices. 

They leverage Tech Data’s cloud providers, including Microsoft Cloud and Amazon Web Services, and its ecosystem of independent software vendors (ISVs), and aggregate additional solutions, components and licensing. 

Click-to-Run solutions help scale partners’ businesses to support their customers’ growing cloud needs, create recurring revenue opportunities, streamline services with provisioning, management, support tools and deliver business outcomes for customers, enabling valuable long-term relationships.

Tech Data recently announced the addition of a new Windows Virtual Desktop on Azure Click-to-Run solution – a move in line with the growing desktop-as-a-service market that Gartner expects will become a nearly $3 billion business in 2021. 

The Windows Virtual Desktop on Azure Click-to-Run solution is available in APAC.
