Tech Data has launched a red hat ecosystem initiative that will bring together partners that have complementary capabilities – skills and experience in red hat on the one hand, and an established presence and reach into the market on the other – with the goal of opening up new opportunities to deploy and manage containerised applications on hybrid cloud platforms.
The red hat ecosystem programme will empower partners to pro-actively build out their own offerings more rapidly and effectively. While current restrictions mean that industry partners can only be brought together in virtual environments, Tech Data will be running a series of events to trigger discussions on potential development opportunities and encourage sharing of ideas, content, and information.
Neil Cornish, Business Development Manager – Industry Solutions, UK and Ireland at Tech Data, said: “We want to bring partners who have complementary skills and capabilities together. ISVs and developers who can build great containerised applications, and reseller partners who have access to key markets and are talking to customers about their evolving needs. By bringing red hat and reseller partners together, we hope to deliver new kinds of solutions to enterprise customers and drive significant new business opportunities for partners.”
