The Ingram Micro Cloud Marketplace is an ecosystem of buyers, sellers and solutions that allows channel partners to transform and grow their business by offering instant access to a wide range of innovative cloud solutions from a single online console.
“With cloud adoption growing steadily in India, we are pleased to deliver the platform, innovative solutions and expertise needed to support cloud business transformation,” said Jaishankar Krishnan, Sr. Vice President and Chief Executive, Ingram Micro India Pvt. Ltd.
The company noted that the Cloud Marketplace is quickly gaining widespread traction in India with nearly 200 channel partners already registered and ready to transact on the automated platform.
